DD is 8 weeks old nearly and very very sucky. She is EBF and won't take a dummy despite my various attempts of various brands and she's currently making herself gag by ramming her hand in her mouth Any tips? I keep offering her the boob but every time my milk lets down she gets annoyed as thats not what she's after.
Same problem here! DS ebf and 6 weeks old, he would quite happily suck on boob all day and like yours he also gets livid if he just wants to suck and milk comes out! I've tried almost every dummy on the market but I feel cruel now as he obviously doesn't want one, he pulls his face in disgust when I try to put it in mouth. I think he will start to suck fingers/thumb as he appears to be trying at the moment but ends up hitting himself in the face poor thing! It's puzzling as my daughter was a dummy lover and DS is prone to overtired meltdowns, a perfect situation where I am sure a dummy would work magic! I'll watch this thread with interest for any advice!
Well it's reassuring to know it's not just my dd! I've triedthe cherry teat tommy tipper ones and she just can't get her head round it. Literally. The only thing that's rattling round my brain is something the dentist said in that you can always take a dummy off a child but you can't take her thumb off her let me know if you find a magic solution!!
