Giving Up The Dummy
My LO is 18 months old and has a dummy during naps, at night time and very occasionally on long car journeys (when she starts getting bored and irritable after throwing her toys on the floor - ha ha!). She sleeps through the night but when she's teething she dribbles more and then due to her having the dummy in, she starts coughing. I know that most advice says babies should give up the dummy at 6 months but at that age she was in a lot of pain with teething and the dummy helped soothe her. I want her to give up the dummy but wanted advice from others on how I go about this: should I just take them off her and make her go cold turkey? Or should I take it from her at nap times but still let her have it at night for a while???
