    Default When did your baby take a dummy?

    I can't get my 5 week old dd to take a dummy so I was after others experiences?

    If your young baby took a dummy was it the silicon ones or cherry teat?

    I've tried tommee tipee and nuby with no luck!

    My dd had the dummy for the first time at 4 days old, she was a sucking bubba. We used avent for the first few months

    Sent from my GT-I9100 using BubHub

    This pretty much. Our DS definitely prefers Avent - hates Nuby.

    Cherry type... The cheap ones from Coles. DS would not take any other type.

    Same! I tried all the fancy ones and he wouldn't take them. Got him onto these at 5 days old I think?

    My bubs was in the hospital neonatal nursery for the first 3 days, they gave him this amazing dummy which he loves. I haven't given it back to him yet cos I don't have a sterilizer.

    Cherry type (tommee t). You have to hold it in their mouth for several seconds before they get used to sucking it. I think its different motion to a boob for them.
