    What is your definition of sleeping through?

    For me it would be you having a full night sleep.

    I'm just curious to know how many babies made bad sleep associations with the dummy that people post about often! In other words, baby waking up all the time for their dummy!

    Okay.

    DS1 had a dummy from 4 weeks and refused to take it from when he turned 1. He didn't sleep through until 2.5 consistently. He would wake to come in for cuddles.

    DS2 had a dummy from 3 days. He wakes twice overnight to feed and goes straight back to sleep without the dummy. He doesn't really like to sleep with it at night.

    Ds1 refused a dummy. We co-slept and he slept through from about 8 months. Maybe a bit earlier.

    Ds2, dummy from birth. Never co-slept. He refused the dummy around 6 months and was sleeping through consistently around 8 months.

    Ds1 would use the dummy to get himself to sleep then he would sleep through. He didn't wake for the dummy until he was older and i had about 4 in his cot so he would find it on his own. We ditched it when he was 3 and it was really easy. He was a reflux bub so the dummy really helped. I would use it again.

    I didn't have any issues with the dummy, they would fall asleep it fell out, that was the end of it. DS from about 9 months until 18 months was a horrid sleeper but it had nothing to do with the dummy. I think particularly if you either have a ff baby, or your bf baby is past the nipple confusion stage then a dummy is fine.
