Dummies

Postby charlibunny » Sat Apr 30, 2011 9:04 pm

Ok, the boy won't settle. Just gone against everything I believe in and gave him a dummy. He is sucking it, and It's keeping him quiet which is a shocker but he keeps spitting the thing out then crying? Uggh I really despise the things but if it works.......
Do they spit them out every minute normally?

Please don't start a debate on dummies on them being good or bad, I just want to know if they learn to suck them for a while on their own, and how do I stop him being a baby with one stuck to his face 24/7?

Ruairidh and Kaitlin sucked their thumbs so i gave them dummies to stop the thumbs. I had to find the right shape to help Roo keep it in. At first i used cherry ones then once he had the hang of it i moved onto orthodontic ones.
He would never keep it in if he was hungry though.

I think it takes a couple days for them to learn to keep hold of it :wink:
some babies just need that constant comfort off sucking all the time,
if you really hate them that much then just let baby have it till they hit 6mnonths and then take it away, wont affect there teeth, speech etc then, and as baby will still be little it will be forgotten about in no time x

Cherry ones are best, Noah cant manage any others, hes had one since 5weeks, but still doesnt keep it in for long. He only has it if im trying to get him to settle, we did the same with Evan and it worked, nap times only if we could, i dont mind them at all though :)

Def cherry teat for a little baby, Martha wouldn't really take one till 4 weeks, its hard for them to get the hang of :hug: we took it away at 7 months, there's really no need to have a 3 year old with a dummy, if he takes to it and you want rid later just PM me and I'll tell you what we did

I agree the cherry ones are best to stay in. I tried all the post orthodontic ones but it was the cheap cherry ones that worked the best.
My boys were very 'sucky' and used to use mummy as a dummy - so we resorted to using a dummy.

definately a god send with sucky babies hun so dont feel bad at all , if it helps comfort him its a good thing , not a bad thing! :wink:

we started off with the avent ones , took them to hosp too much to the midwifes disgust :hohoho: , but the only ones he took to after a few weeks of experimenting were the MaM ones.....i ended up buying a bulk load of 20 (brand new obviously!) from ebay when he was a couple of months for about a fiver!! Lasted us till he gave them up though :giggle:

ryan hade one at 4 weeks as he was a suck baby he would only take the cherry ones as well

if he needs one then that fine i hated the thought of a dummy too but it was the only way to settle him. i wish i had taken it way from him early as he still has it now and it so hard to get him not to have it now
