So DD2 has become an appalling sleeper. She's 6 months old. Waking every hour or more. I took her to a super helpful paed who suggested she isn't sleeping at night because she's overweight and I need to restrict my 10kg baby to 3 x 150mls a day of milk. Yes I'm sure she will sleep better on an empty belly.
So I've decided to ditch the dummy and see if that helps. God I will miss shoving it in every time she cries. But I need more than 2 hours of broken sleep a night.

My only advice is to not give in when you have started. Stating the obvious, I know. But it's oh so tempting when you just want to close your eyes for a little bit! Hope it goes smoothly for you.

Good luck. Hopefully all goes well. When my ds stopped having his dummy I was worried as he used it to settle and he forgot about it within a few days.

Good luck, stick to your guns - if you don't, THE BABY WINS! It really does get better though. Not having to get up every five seconds to jam that piece of plastic in your bub's mouth will do wonders for everyone's sleep.
Perhaps try a teddy or some sort of special comforter if she gets really antsy. We replaced the dummy with a giant Nemo. Now DS has an army of stuffed toys as bed mates. He's never lonely.
(And yes, by all means start your bub on the dieting track early. I'm sure Weight Watcher's has a special on newborn calorie counting. Seriously, wtf is the paed thinking?)

She finally slept last night! Up at 11 for a burp and 4 for a feed. So I've decided to see if any of the other changes I've done are working before I ditch the dummy. It's like she knew it was about to go so finally slept to make me doubt myself.
Thanks everyone for all the support!
