Do you have any ideas on how best to get rid of the dummy?

my 4 1/2 month old will only go to sleep with a dummy but the moment it falls out she wakes herself up and crys until i put it back in. do you have any ideas on how best to get rid of the dummy so she will sleep better. she has also started to suck her thumb a little bit

Maree...
Answer: Hi,
It may be time to get rid of the dummy, try using our settling techniques instead of offering the dummy to teach her to sleep independently.

Cheers, Maree
