    Default Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    We went as long as we could without using one ... About 6-8wks as it was the age I was recommended to avoid nipple confusion.

    At the end of the day, if baby wants/needs milk its gonna suck u properly til the milk comes and you also need to sleep well to be a good mum and be happy and produce milk too. If u think the dummy at night may help to settle then give it a try.

    Don't forget it can be annoying when they wake because they lost the dummy in the bed though too ....

    The authors admitted they did not yet have enough data on the long-term effects of dummies on babies' health and development.
    Therefore co-author Dr Jacqueline Ho said 'mothers should not use pacifiers if they have an alternative way to deal with crying and fussing.'

    Default Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    From what I read of the actual study they did not look at the impact using dummies had on supply either.

    They will let you know when the dummy won't cut it and they want milk. We started dummy at 1 week and he always let me know when he wanted to feed.

    This exactly. If a baby is hungry, there's only so long a dummy will keep them calm. Great for getting an extra 5mins out of them though, say you're driving or something!

    Default Dummies- do they effect breastfeeding?

    So she took the dummy only then first time and he refused to have it at all the rest of the night!
    She gagged when I tried to give it to her!

    So I'm guessing it means she won't take it and I'm back at square one!

    It took awhile for DS to want the dummy. About a week I think of us giving it to him before he really accepted it.

    It's up to you if you want to persist with it or not.

    It could be the shape of the dummy. My DD only took ones with a certain tip and refused all others. Give a couple of other brands/ shapes a go as it could be the feel of the one you gave her she didn't like and not the dummy itself.

    Also try a bit of BM on it.
