    My LO had to have a few sessions of CC before she found her thumb and now uses that instead of a dummy. Maybe try that? It's really worth it I found because even though she sucks her thumb, it's only to get her to sleep. Once she's sleeping she takes it out.

    Hey,

    I took Jenna's dummy away about a month ago so a but younger than your lo but for the same reasons. I had to use CC but it worked very quickly and she generally sleeps much better now.

    I took Lo's dummy away at 7 months, cold turkey. He was a little unsettled for the first few naps/nights but he never screamed or anything and was soon back to normal and now self settles at night (without crying I hasn't to add). I'm very glad I did it when I did as I can honestly say he wasn't that bothered which I think he might have been if he had been older. X

    Well if you really want him to not have it anymore you probably will have to do a bit of CC with him now, as you dont want to start rocking him to sleep. xx

    We are having problems too, LO only started using a dummy properly at 10week old, but relies heavily on it for naps/night time sleeps, but he wakes every 15minutes in the night, sometimes i don't biother going to bed, just drink energy drinks its that tiring. I;'m wondering the best way to go about it too?
