    Default Best dummy?

    DD used to take her dummy at night (tomee tippee cherry) but now she just plays around with it from side to side on her gums and keeps spitting it out
    I think she is teething but could it be she's just not interested or the size/shape is no good?
    What's the best dummy you've used? Is it worth me trying other ones or is she just not going to be a dummy sucker?
    She sucks her hands/fingers/bib/toy.... Anything she can get in her mouth really.... Except the dummy.

    You could try another shape. My DD goes through stages where she will only take her dummy when she is super tired

    I tried a difrax the other day but again it just gets chewed from side to side... Maybe when her gums settle down

    I've always used the nuk silicone orthodontic ones but baby #5 didn't like them. I tried all the other expensive ones and wasted my money....she's settled for the tommee tippee cherry ones.
    My 4th baby refused them all together.

    We used to use the Cole brand cherry soothers which were awesome but they were discontinued. For ds2 we used Nuby to begin with and it just didnt sit in his mouth because of the shape. We then bought Avent cherry soothers and haven't had a problem since. Also we have always given him the 6m+ dummies as apparently they stay in their mouths better

    DS3 uses Avent orthodontic, nuby or heinz baby basics cherry... he really isnt fussy. My DS2 did the same as your DD when he was 7 months old and he hasnt had a dummy since

    DD will only take the Nuk orthodontic. Only time she spits it out is when she's hungry.
