    Yep same for DS, from about 3wks old.

    OP some babies just don't like dummies. A friend of mine has 2 who are severe finger (not thumb!) suckers, but would never take a dummy.

    Jasper never really took a dummy despite a lot of trying.

    Katelyn did from birth, there was a couple of months where dummies were strategically located within arms reach all over the house. Lol. But when she started teething (3-4 months!!!) She started chewing them and stopped sucking them. I try now (she's 5 months) she screams and arches away.

    I bought a cheap one from Big W whilst pregnant, not really thinking she would take it as DS never ever wanted one and would always reject it. But she loves it (have no idea what type it is...?? just a ball shape)..

    I'm really hating her having a dummy...but it's the only thing that settles her sometimes.. at night it falls out of her mouth every 5 minutes and she screams until I get up and pop it back in
    The last two nights I haven't slept a wink because of it. I have tried nursing her to sleep but as soon as she hits that cot, she wails for her dummy!

    She is 2 weeks old and has taken her dummy since day 2.. usually just for when she's really unsettled but recently she was constipated and we have changed her formula so she has been crying more often and her dummy is the one thing that soothes her.

    From about 1 week old DD took an Avent one. She only takes it on her own terms though- we've never been able to just put it in her mouth. We touch her lips with it and she takes it if she wants it.

    I gave DS a dummy at 3 days old because his sucking reflex was non existent as he was a premmie. This made breastfeeding quite hard. He was still in the Special Care Nursery and I saw they used the Happy Baby cherry dummies. So those were the ones I bought and used. (The nurses didn't want me to give DS a dummy, so I had to give it at midnight when it was quiet and noone was watching. Lo and behold, he was attaching just fine at the next feed. Mums always know best )

    He took very well to the dummy, but at 6 weeks he was admitted to hospital for bad reflux and I can still remember him spitting the dummy out of the cot and when I washed it and gave it back to him, he didn't want it anymore.
    I can't blame him though, why have a dummy, when you have mummy?

    EDIT: May I ask why you want to give a dummy?

    DD took a dummy from 6 days old, the happy baby brand from Safeway/big w.

    We bought the flat ones and she hated them, so so glad she takes the cherry shape, We have tried cherry shapes from other brands and she hates them.

    She now 5 weeks old and will only take the dummy if she wants it, and spits it out when she's fast asleep.
