    My daughter is 4 1/2 months old, will not take any type of dummy (I've tried a lot) and she sleeps from 7-7

    Depends how you define that...full night with no feeds/wakings?
    My daughter's 10 months and doesn't sleep through (in that sense). We used a dummy up until she was almost 7 months. She sleeps much better without it.

    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!
    That's what I considered sleeping-through too. I don't know if we ever did this "6-6" thing... and she's 8. lol.

    So I stick to my answer of 3 weeks. It was about 11pm until 8am, and then she'd fall back asleep until about 10 or 11.

    When she first got on the dummy, we were co-sleeping, so popping a dummy back in was easy. After a while she just learnt to hold it in or not really care if it fell out.

    When she was a bit past 2 I took her dummy from her... and apart from a bit of an issue on her first night or two (and day naps too) I noticed no change at all. She's always been a good sleeper, dummy or not.
