    Default Dummy while baby is congested?! Breathing?

    Dd is 9 months and has never taken a dummy and for some reason tonight has taken one. She is an absolutely chronic all night wake and feeder. She uses me as a pacifier all night and I'm incredibly sleep deprived. She went to sleep really well with the dummy and has been happily sleeping for over two hours, still sucking on the dummy. Only I'm a little worried because she has a snuffly nose and I don't know if dummies are a sids risk or anything? She is breathing through her nose but still sounds congested and is making sort of snoring sounds. I'm so happy because its usually me she would be sucking on the past two hours and maybe this means ill get some sleep.. But I don't want her to have a dummy if she might struggle to breathe? What if she goes to gasp and can't? Will she be able to push it out herself in her sleep? Please someone give me advice :/

    She will absolutely be able to push it out if she needs to. Don't worry. In fact if this is her first time at taking it I am surprised she has kept it in by herself so long. Hope you get some well deserved sleep tonight!! My baby takes a dummy and has an awful cold too at the moment! He too is up all night unable to breathe. 😪

    Thank you. I just wasn't sure if it was automatic response she would have. Hope your baby and mine get over their colds soon!
