be rid of thy dum dums Lock Rss

my bubs (5 months) is addicted to her dummy which i call
Evil mr.Dum dums
at the moment she is teething so i dont dare remove it as i know she needs it for comfort..
how did you mumma's get rid of the dummie
should i take it from her cold turkey???

Lillie....1 year old!!!

I've said it a few times so sorry to be boring, I went cold turkey with DD at 6 months. Its a really tough question though Mimmy as there are pretty much equal pros and cons with a dummy.

How much does your DD have 'Evil mr Dum dums'? I mean, does she have it during the day and night? Are you keen on getting rid of it now or by a particular age?

DD is 3yr 8 months - DS is 6 months


with our daughterwe started at about 5.5 months by taking it away through the day because she didn't actually need it and i think we were giving it to her out of habbit.

so we still gave it at night for about a week then we went cold turkey for about a week until she got a cold and gave it to her a few times to help sleep at night after a few days we went totally cold turkey when she was about 6 months old and now at nily 7 months old she doesn't even remember it.

for us it worked but every bub is different
we did have a few bad nights where it took her longer than normal to fall asleep when we went cold turkey

good luck
