DD has been unsettled all night. I went to bed at 10pm, she woke up at 11pm & we've been partying all night. I just want to cry. I feel like running away. I'm so f***ing exhausted and I'll need energy to keep up with DS today.
She can't keep a dummy in her mouth & all she wants to do is suck on something. Just shoot me!

Can you feed her lying down? Does she sleep in your bed?

Try different dummies. I found the avent ones best. Do you have help? Is your DH able to take her while you get some rest?

Have you tried the happy baby dummy? Old style bulb type. It's the only one my dd would take.

Big hugs - just wanted to sympathise. At 4 months dd still won't take a dummy (ive tried numerous types) and still likes to suck to go to sleep. I feed lying down of a night time so I can get some rest too.

Massive hugs. It can be exhausting! Do you have anyone who can help during the night so you can get some rest?

Have you tried the next size up? DS wouldn't take a dummy (Nuk) and then I read on here that a bub wouldn't take a dummy but when she tried the next size up (6-12/18 months) it worked a treat because the bigger size stays in their mouth better. Worked a treat for us!

*hugs* My son was the same when he was a newborn, always wanted to comfort suck on something, so dummies were a great idea but the new ones they have out just kept falling out of his mouth, my midwife suggested I try the old school ones, the bulb type ones, it stayed in his mouth and was a lot easier to suck on I guess, he loved them

Yes agree with all of the above I bought as many types as I could and eventually DD liked the avent one at 5 weeks, I can't explain the joy I felt.
Hang in there it is so hard in the first few weeks, call in any troops you can!
