    You know, given you are having bad nights anyway, why don't you try going without the dummy? Seriously, it sounds like your nights cant get any worse, but they can get better.

    Has anyone tried this and had success?

    Hands on settling

    When you see your baby's tired signs (cues), prepare your baby for sleep

    Check your baby's nappy
    Wrap your baby in a light cotton sheet (optional) – taking care not to overheat
    Talk quietly and cuddle your baby to encourage a state of calm
    Position your baby on their back in the cot awake [calm/drowsy]. Ensure cot sides are up and secure
    Comfort your baby by: gentle ssshhh sounds, gentle rhythmic patting or rocking, or stroking staying until calm or asleep
    If your baby remains distressed you may need to pick your baby up for a cuddle until calm. Once calm repeat steps 4 and 5.

    I put a few dummies in dds cot so if she lost one she had several still to locate. Seemed to work well

    Yep - depending on age. I eventually had to stop and get him to self settle but I use it now with my 7 wk old and very effective for us.

    My DS 7 weeks wake every hour at night for a re-settle as he can't self settle I don't know why but it's always been a problem he feeds every 3 hours through the night.

    Yep. I started at 12mths with both girls. Works well except when sick or teething. Then we all snuggle in bed together.

    That is way way way too young to be expecting bub to self settle. It's not biologically normal. And 3hrly feeds is super normal for 7wk old bub. Cripes dd2 was 2hrly for ages.

    Yes worked very well when dd was 4.5 months. Then she hit a wonder week and it all ended and now at nearly 7 months we're back to hourly wakings and will only calm when fed or cuddled!!!!

    Yes. Both my boys hated it and just got worked up when I was touching them. Co-sleeping has been the only thing to keep me sane.

    I have 4 children and he is the only one that has not been able to self settle.
