    Chuck it, even though I think it would be fine after boiling in water for 5 minutes.

    I'd throw it out eventhough I suppose it might be ok after 5 minutes in boiling water. Dummies are so cheap I wouldn't even think of reusing it after a dip in the toilet.

    Chuck it! x but I'm a freak, I buy new toilet brushes every month & clean the toilets 3 times a day. I know toddlers prob put worse things in their mouths than ultra sterilized dummy's that have taken a swim in the loo, but I couldn't do it.

    Thanks all thought so but at 8.30 at night it's so tempting to have given it instead of going to but another one! On our way out now to get one

    I'd chuck it and I'm pretty relaxed with kids and dirt and germs.

    Chuck it and don't go get a new one. Look at this as a great opportunity to give up a sleep aid that can cause sleep association issues. (Yes I am biased).

    Good luck

    I would make sure you have plenty of dummies on hand for such emergencies. They only get more common as your toddler gets older
