My DS is 2 years and 2 months. He has always been a problem sleeper - waking on a good night 3 times - bad night up to 8 times. He has two sleep associations one with holding my hand to go to sleep and one with his dummy. He won't put it back in by himself.
So last night I said no more dummy - and told him he will get a present in the morning if he sleeps without it. Anyway, it was a very long night waking about 3 times in tears and crying and begging for his dummy.
Does anyone know how long it will take until he forgets or doesn't want it? I hopefully have the willpower not to give in to him as I don't want to put him through this trauma and then go back to giving him his dummy but it is so hard!!!
I really think in the long run he will sleep better without it. Any thoughts?
