Has anyone had any experience or success introducing a dummy around 3- 4 months?
As you may or may not be aware, dd2 is has not slept since for 4-5 weeks now and it's getting worse- she woke 8-9 times the past 3 nights DEMANDING to nurse, whining and sucking on her hands. She cracks it completely if I try to rock her or resettle by other means.
She's too young to sleep train and I'm not coping.
I tried a dummy as a newborn and she didn't take it. I'm wondering if I should try again.
I know it's a sleep aid and is have to take it away later but I NEED something to get me through the next couple of months before I plan to teach her to self settle. It would be easier to roll over (her bed is next to mine) and pop in a dummy than sit up every hour and get my boobs out! And car rides are awful she hates the car, a dummy would help.
And no, co sleeping is NOT an option.
But I'm wondering if it's too late? Any tips, tricks or advice?
