    DS had one from a month. No feeding issues, but make sure you feed regularly bc it's harder to understand cues. At 4 1/2 months it started interfering with sleep so that's when I weaned him off it. No problems - completely forgotten 24 hrs later.

    I totally get that it's normal and I have and will suck it up as I remember it's normal and temporary, however if I can make life a little easier for the family with no significant draw back I'm going to give it a go.

    Default Breast feeding and dummies

    Ds2 had a dummy from a week or so old. No issues at all with supply, if he was hungry he wouldn't have the dummy at all so he still fed frequently.

    And in my experience it's been a godsend for sleep! I've never had to wake up and put it back in overnight. Now as long as there is a dummy in the cot/pram/car he will go to sleep on his own no matter where we are.

    I never had an issue with supply and dummy with my DS. Some unsettled sucky bubs need a dummy!!
