14 month old baby won't sleep! Help... Dummy related? Or separation anxiety?

Little girl will go to bed perfectly, she has a bath then into pj's then into bed with a warm bottle. Then she's off to sleep in seconds.... For an hour or so then it's 4-5 times before we go to bed that she's crying for dummy. Once dummy is in and she's settled she's OK for about an hour. But then it's 10 or so times in the night that she's awake for dummy.
She will then be up at 6am and asleep for 2 hours by 8.30am and sleeps perfectly and doesnt wake for dummy once! I'm waking up with tiredness headaches everyday and can't go back to sleep when she does. I just either can't get to sleep or I feel worse when I have had a nap! Anyone experienced this or have any tips!?

Can you put loads of dummies in her cot so she can find one herself to put in? Either that, or have a few miserable nights while you whip the dummy away but then she will sleep without needing it.
