    Default Waking at night...

    My 7mth old slept through the night from 6 weeks old... 6.30pm-6.30am... however, the last 5 weeks, he's been waking up anywhere between 5-15 times a night - all he wants is his dummy, and he goes back to sleep... so i'm out of bed for all of 20 seconds at a time... just enough for broken sleep and leaving me a zombie every day... we've tried giving him panadol and bonjella at night thinking it's teeth, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    not sure what else it could be... he has good sleeps and doesn't wake for his dummy during the day, only at night...

    any ideas?

    If it was me I'd be going cold turkey on the dummy. You'd have a couple of bad nights but sounds pretty bad as it is currently!

    have you tried a dummy strap? you can buy them from anywhere... Target, WW or Coles, they clip onto clothing so the dummy can't fall too far and bub can feel around and pop dummy back in mouth.

    i'm just a bit worried about using a dummy strap while he's sleeping...??

    and as for ditching the dummy, i have no issues with that, however, he doesn't wake wanting it during the day, only at night and he doesn't use his dummy at all outside of his bed, only in bed, but he spits it out as soon as he's in a deep sleep anyway...

    I had the same concern re dummy strap but I just pin it halfway down his jumpsuit so not near his neck. The target one I bought is material (2 in pack about $10) and the clip is really strong. My bub is 9 months now and we're starting to wean him off the dummy. Might be worthwhile going through a few days of pain of no dummy but that broken sleep is really tough. Good luck whatever you do.

    I had glow in the dark dummy's and left like 4 in her cot so she could find them herself and go back to sleep thankfully she refused the dummy @10 months when she got her top teeth
