I sort of coslept with DD and I now cosleep with DS.
DD was in a basinette next to my side of the bed and she'd spend half the night in bed with us when she was little but she actually hates bed sharing so she's now in her own cot.
DS sleeps much better with me (he's a cuddly sookie baby) I use pillows to make sure he doesn't roll off the bed, I put him up at my head level so not to accidentally cover him with blankets and we use separate blankets. Oh and it's a lot easier when DH isn't in bed too which works now coz he's sleeping in DD's room lol

Another option if you wanted to keep the dummy (they come in handy I do admit) is this
At 6 months she might be able to find it then and put it back in herself

My DD has always been a bad sleeper. I sympathise.
As for dummies... It was around this age that my DD started finding them and putting them in her mouth herself.
I saw the link to the sleep comforter. .. I've done this with a small muslin. She's rubs it against her face and cuddles it. I tie a dummy to the corner of it so it can't be lost either kind of the same principal.
Good luck. I hope it improves soon for you.
My sleep deprivation was slowly turning me insane! You cope the best way you can.

Your two options really are either ditching the dummy all together or using some of the other techniques mentioned to help her find them at night.
I would recommend getting rid of it all together as she's only 6 months and it will be getting rid of a sleep crutch.
I wouldn't recommend co-sleeping though as you would just be replacing one sleep crutch with another. A friend started doing this with her DD at 9 mins an she's now 22 months old an she can't get her to sleep on her own now as she's created another.
At 6 months you can start sleep training. But that doesn't mean controlled crying if you aren't comfortable with that, but we found hands on settling helped. There are some great resources on the tresillian website. Check it out.
And good luck. Only you know what you feel comfortable with but if you know you don't function on not much sleep, don't try co sleeping as you're just delaying teaching her to sleep on her own. But if you want a short term fix until you're ready to sleep train, co-sleeping may help.
