    Default Dummy!!

    So DD is 5 weeks old and struggles to keep the dummy in her mouth.. As Im a first time mum I'm not sure if it could be the kind of dummy or is she too young to be able to keep it in her mouth?

    The easiest ones for them to keep in are the cheap 'Happy Baby' brand ones from the supermarket. The teat part is really big and round so stays in better than some of the flat orthodontic ones. That said, my DD is strange and doesn't like happy baby, even though they are easier, she only takes Philips Avent now she is older they stay in easily!

    Ah yes, they were the the ones I used with absolutely no luck. I ended up using tommee tippee cherry shaped, she still loves them at 2 :/

    Ds I tried the cherry shape and he hated It, he likes the closure to nature ones. As pp said I had to use the 6m old size with him.

    Perhaps she doesn't want the dummy. Not all do, neither of my boys did. I would get rid of the dummy rather than encourage it.

    I was thinking this too.

    Is she crying because she dropped the dummy and wants it again or is she just not keeping it in?
    Dd wasn't fussed with a dummy and it was more hassle than it was worth trying to get her to keep it in. I gave up after a few weeks.
