When DD was small she had a dummy right up till she was 3. When she started playgroup I weaned her off it by only letting her have it when she was tired, and then one night I just didnt give it to her. She cried for a bit but was fine after that. On the flip side, I didnt have a dummy as a child and ending up sucking my thumb till I was 13!!!! Much harder to drop a thumb than a dummy lol! I think with this LO I'd be worried about nipple confusion as I intend on BFing but at the same time, if she's fretful for something to comfort her then I will try a dummy. So I guess I'm still undecided lol!
