Well I have decided thats it no dummies anymore! I think its why DS wakes in the night, cause its fallen out and he wants it back, and its doing my head in going in to him for that. Plus although I dont tend to let him have it during the day unless he is really grizzly or in the car (he can scream loads while your driving) I think it might be partially to blame for im not speaking yet, cause he makes grunting noises with his mouth closed instead. So last night when he woke up and cried at 4:40am I went into him and pulled his blanket round him and didnt give him his dummy. He cried for 10 mins, so OH said he would go into him. I told him just to tuck him in stroke his cheak but NO DUMMY. he was gone ages so I went in and told him to leave him and not to make a fuss, so we got back into bed and he cried another 10 mins but then stopped and went back to sleep. After that he just woke a couple of times with a squeal but went straight to sleep again. This morning Iput his dummies away for good in a draw, so I will see how he gets on. Not looking forward to afternoon naps, as without a dummy he tends to just stand and scream till he gets it. then goes to sleep.
