DD2 is 14mo, she has left her dummy in the car this morning and we've avoided it since. She asked for it once and i just said no so off she went.
So tonight i'm going cold turkey, but she still gets a bottle at night and i don't want her trying to use that as a comfort. Just now she drinks her bottle downstairs and goes to bed awake and settles fine.
DD1 used her bottle to get to sleep, it was a nightmare and even now she doesn't settle to sleep well (2.8yo).
i kind of thought that the bottle was too much, so we'll just see how she goes with no dummy. I just don't want her replacing the dummy with something else to go to sleep and would rather she settled herself.
i will get the dummy from the car just in case and if we succeed then i'll try the bottle in a few months.
