Just wondered who gave a dummy and who didn't and what your reasons for it were. I gave a dummy because Grace was constantly on the bottle and if I went out for the day would take about 4 with me, if she didn't have one in her mouth she cried. One day at my wits end and fedup of being stuck inside I gave her a dummy and now I can go out wherever whenever and she hardly ever cries unless she gets bored. It's been my lifesaver! Remember there is NO right or wrong answer to this question!
