    Yes but for how long, did the instance of early weaning increase? The study doesn't say how long they followed them for as far as I can see.

    Default Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    Used dummy from birth, bf successfully until 14 months. No issues here.
    I also back some of the other poster though. Ditch the dummy when they can walk. It gets harder to wean as time progresses as I found out the hard way!!

    The only baby that would take a pacifier was the last one I bf and she got the pacifier at 2 days old no problems at all.

    Default Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    I am probably going to get shot for this but.... I used a dummy from when DS was 4 hours old... He breast fed fine I used a gumdrop pacifier. I have packed some in my nappy bag for this baby, but you need to do what you feel is right

    It was whilst they were in hospital. So the number of babies supplemented with formula increased when they stopped giving dummies out. And we know that babies given formula in hospital are less likely to be breastfed in the long term than one exclusively breastfed.

    Default Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    Used dummies for all 3 of my babies- I took them to hospital with me. But got rid of them between 6 and 9 months.
    Breastfeed all for 12+ months.

    Default Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    Using a dummy actually helped my bub to bf as he was prem and very jaundiced so had a very weak suck. The dummy helped him learn how to suck, I honestly don't think I would have been able to get him to bf without it. He will still very occasionally have it (he's 6 months) just for a bit of comfort, but he doesn't need it or anything!'

    I used a dummy from a few weeks old as DD was a comfort sucker and I was in terrible pain. She BF until 3 when I weaned her.

    We took the dummy away at 2 years.

    Default Re: Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    Both my babies were very very sucky newbies and I needed to rest my nipples. Both of them refused a dummy after 3 months (partly to my dismay but what are you gonna do)

    Oh and bfed ds 38 months.

    Dd 9.5 months and counting.

    Default Re: Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    And have like a million dummies. It's so hard to find a dummy cosleeping so keep (a few!) Under your pillow etc etc etc

    Katelyn was much keener on a dummy than jasper so I had dummies everywhere all over the house, nappy bag, pram, grandmas etc
