My LB is two and 3 months! His speech is very advanced for his age, due to mobility issues when he was younger. I want to stop his dummy as his talking is so good and I also worry about his teeth (dont want him to have rainbow teeth)
So far weve managed to take it away most of the day but night time is near impossible! Hea never slept through the night and wakes 3+ tims a night searching for it! I have no idea how to take them away completley!
I fretted and worried and googled and mn'd this topic when DS was 2.5.
We managed to get it down to daytime only, then one night he just forgot to ask for it! DH and I stood outside his door listening but he just fell asleep! The next night he did ask and we said 'you didn't need it last night,' and he seemed to accept this!
All that fretting and he dropped it just like that! So try not to fret it, if you can be rid of it during the day then your 80% there!
