Harry is 27 months old and is still very reliant on a dummy. He has a comforter too, and associates one with the other (e.g. "want my dummy-teddy please"). I'm happy for him to keep his comforter, but want rid of the dummy because he dribbles like mad when he's got it and has a red dry-skin chin most of the time which i'm constantly caking in greasy cream. Anyone got any tips on ditching the dummy for children who just wouldn't understand the "dummy fairy", or "giving dummies to the babies" etc or "dummy in exchange for present/treat"? I have asked Harry if he wants to give his dummy to the babies and he just says no! I've also tried bribery... doesn't work. It seems he wants to keep the dummy over anything I offer. And when he doesn't have it - oh my god, it's like the end of the world. Please help!
