All 3 of mine have had a dummy. DD didn't have one until 6 weeks old and that was after a long car trip that left her very unsettled and I don't think she ever got overly attached and only needed it sometimes and actually self weaned off it at 8 months. DS2 was from close the beginning he was a premmie and the Dr recommended giving him one when he was being fed through his nasal tube to help learn the breath suck swallow motion he needed but he didn't have one after around 6 months he just didn't want it one day and DS2 has had one since day one and is now 18 months and still needs it to sleep but if we don't put them up he will try and have it during the day when he is playing.

Thanks everyone - all the advice and experiences are much appreciated. I ended up purchasing some Nuk dummies from baby expo on the weekend for 'emergency' situations....
I'm more comfortable only giving DS a dummy at night if he absolutely needs it to settle. Do I remove the dummy when he falls asleep or do u wait till baby has spat it out? I dnt want baby to look for it in the middle of night....

I'd let him spit it out on his own, if he's like my DS he'll do it after a minute or two. You'd risk waking him if you take it out unless you wait until he's in a deep sleep.

My DS3 has a dummy and he has slept through the night from early on. He is also fed to sleep and has no sleep issues.
