Let's talk dummies.
If you’ve ever used a dummy before and felt a pang of guilt, you’re not alone! Everyone has their opinions on the great dummy debate but popping a dummy into your baby's mouth to settle them isn't the worst thing in the world. Babies are born with a natural sucking instinct and using a dummy has many benefits for both you and bub!
The hard part is when the time comes to wean your little one off dummies. But most parents fear the thought of taking it away, rather than actually doing it and the reality is, it’s not as painful as you may think! Of course, there will be a few tears and tantrums but if you’ve only been using dummies when your little one really needs it, it should be pretty straightforward, and they should be over it in a few days. Some children will even start to phase it out themselves as they develop other coping skills!
