If you are reading this article, it's likely your baby has been using a dummy for a few months. Perhaps you are wondering if dummy use is OK. Or perhaps your baby is waking many times a night for their dummy and you are wondering where to from here!!!
At The Sleep Store, we support parents decision to use a dummy. We used them with our 4 boys when they were little. They all had their dummies until they were toddlers, and we think that was OK for our family.
But everyone is different and you need to decide what is OK for your baby now as they move into being an older baby rather than a newborn.
So really the decision is whether the dummy is helpful for your baby and you want to keep using it, or are you ready to get rid of it?
