I took the dummy away from my ds1 at 5 months because of the same thing. I just took it away cold turkey. There was screaming the first night but he slept sooooooooooo much better after I got rid if it. Good luck, I know it's daunting

Yeah, I would just go cold turkey also. It might be a few days/nights of tears from bub, but she will sleep much better with out it. My DD1 had her dummy until she was nearly 3, my DD2 got rid of her dummy at 6 m/o. It was much less painful dealing with it at 6 m/o than 3 y/o. Good luck, I know its very daunting.

We got a dummy chain, or rather it was a short ribbon that tethered the dummy to his pyjamas and that worked for a long time. At least until he figured out that of he yanked on the ribbon the clip would slide off.

We used to put 3 or 4 dummies in DS1s cot so he could reach one if he lost one. I was too paranoid to due those dummy chains/ribbons.

I took the dummies away cold turkey from DS around the same age. It wasn't long at all before he didn't miss them. Good luck

We put a few dummies in the cot, it was a phase and didn't last very long. We also put mesh around the cot so the dummies wouldn't fall out.

Ok so when you have take the dummy, what kind of things did you go to comfort bub?

My bub was very small and we only let him have a dummy until about 6 weeks, from about 8 weeks he slept through the night. I think cold turkey is best, the longer you drag it out the worse it will be. Maybe do it on a few days where you are willing to be up all night.

My bub was wrapped until 3 months and that comforted him. He self settles too.
