    Dd was probably 15 hrs old.
    She was Constantly comfort sucking.
    I had her latched on for 2 hrs of and on, and after VERY sore nipples decided enough was enough.
    The nurses and midwives did their usual 'did you know this, do you know that' but honestly, I felt I knew my bub best. And as soon as I popped the dummy in, she seemed so much more content.

    If I could turn back time I would have introduced the dummy as soon as DS' sleep regressed at about 6 weeks. I don't think feeding to sleep is bad at all (I still feed him to sleep at 11 months) but because he fed to sleep, my supply went through the roof and caused him to cry and choke at every let down

    My DS was 5 days old. And we went on BFing for 11 months... so I don't think dummies affect it.
    Good luck with you bubba!

    Did you say 4 days? Is your milk even properly in yet? I dare say that is why she is latched constantly as she is trying to establish your milk supply. Both my bubbbas were permantly attached to my boob about 12 hours straight prior to my full milk coming in. If you want to breastfeed I wouldn't introduce one now as it is natures way of matching yor supply to your babies needs. It will settle down in a few days. At about 2 weeks if you still want to introduce a dummy do it then.

    With DD1 at about 7 days old as my nipples were hanging by a by thread. BF for 12months, had trouble getting rid of dummy so threw it out at 2yrs.
    DD2 was 3w early so just slept and fed really well no nipple issues. Now at 4w old she comfort sucks, would love to give a dummy but she wont take it, have tried various shapes

    Pretty much soon after she was born...I think it was when we brought her home, so about 2-3 days. She's 9mths now and I only give it to her when she's in bed and once she turns 1, I'll be taking it off her more often at bed times
