In terms of ds2 I'm really debating what to do. He's 3 months now and at first wasn't too bothered with dummy but now is pretty attached to go to sleep. His sleep at night has been quite up and down with some very restless nights and I know the dummy isn't helping as he gets frustrated and stressed when it falls out. For anyone who took it away early how did you do it? I'm finding it so hard to with hold it when he's screaming to go to sleep and I know as soon as I give it to him it will calm him down. Does it take long for them to get over it? Do you just let them cry until they are exhausted from crying and realise the dummy is not coming??
