Same here, I think my DS enjoys making me play fetch. We found some improvement with the orthodontic shaped, but not much.

ds = darling son
dd = darling daughter

I would try going without the dummy - perhaps your baby will settle back to sleep without it.

i doubt it she does go 4 a few hrs when i put her to bed then she starts wanting it bout 3 o clock n from then onwards, some people say to dip it in stuff is this a good idea cos not really sure bout this and what anyway

No, dont dip it in anything - bad for their developing teeth!

Have you tried different shaped teats?

yes but everting same using the cherry shaped ones as they seem to have the biggest teats

Maybe she just doesnt need it ?

Forget it. Less traumatic in the future.
