DD is not quite 3 yet, but I thought I'd post in the 3-5 year section as well as the 24 - 36 month section in the hope that someone can provide share a positive outcome.
DD is a dreadful dummy addict. She takes at least 3 to bed with her, one in each hand a well as the mouth, and she sleeps with one in her mouth all night long.
Whilst we try to limit her dummy to sleep time only, before we know it she's found one of her many dummies that seem to end up all over the house. I am starting to think that it's time to ditch them completely.
We tried to do exchange dummies for the Easter bunny to bring extra eggs, and we talked it up a lot leading up to Easter. She was quite enthusiastic about it until it came to go to sleep, and she would not give up her dummies, even saying she didn't want any chocolate. So we didn't push that one.
I'm hoping someone else has been in a similar situation. Did you just delay giving up the dummy, try again later, waited for your child to give them up on their own, try another method?
Would be grateful for anyone willing to share their experience.
