    My DS is 2 weeks old, I had a midwife come out a week ago and told me to give DS a dummy as he was probably comfort sucking.

    Those were her exact words... And in my experience.. It was right. I thought my son was comfort sucking... Turns out I had low supply & he wasn't getting anything.

    But, let the flaming begin. Everyone gets so defensive on dummies...

    Funny that, not all experiences are the same so just because it was right for you doesnt mean its not a load of rubbish for others

    My first two needed dummies, my last didn't. My first baby wouldn't have gotten off my boobs (and before I introduced a dummy he literally wouldn't stop sucking for hours) if I hadn't given a dummy. As long as you are feeding very regularly if they have it while they are sleeping they will still wake when they are hungry.

    Would you not think that a 1 week old would be sucking to build supply (as that is when the milk is coming in)... Not sucking for comfort??? Anyway... I'm not getting into an argument with you about why you should or shouldn't use a dummy... I'm just sharing MY experience, like every other person on here does...

    How many kids do you have?

    I have 3 and every baby is so different.

    My supply was not a problem. In fact, I probably had an over supply. I leaked constantly for 3 months, had to change the sheets everyday and put a mattress protector on because every morning I woke up saturated. One time at a shop, I was getting stared at, only realised when I got home that I had leaked through breast pads and had big circles of milk on my shirt. My son hated all the milk coming out because he did suck for comfort.

    Perhaps someone could start a new thread about comfort sucking.

    Let's not detract from MWL's issue of finding solutions to help with her new one.
