How do I wean a 3 1/2 month off a dummy Lock Rss

My son has a dummy to settle himself off to sleep. That is the only time during the day/night that he has it. He spits it out and I end up standing over him with my finger poised to catch the dummy. I have tired leaving him for 10 minutes to see if he settles himself, it has worked on the odd occassion but most of the time I stand there with the dummy, more so at night.
I am worried that he is becoming too dependant on it and that will be the only way he will go to sleep.
Am I worrying over nothing?

Hi,
A dummy, and the constant loss of it can be the cause for frequent waking. It does sound like it is becoming a sleep association and you would be wise to get rid of it now.

Try using some settling techniques instead. You can get details for this on <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/pregnancy_parenting/yourbabysleep/">Your Baby’s Sleep</a> page or from It’s Time to Sleep DVD&BOOK .

Huggies have a great discount offer on at the moment – see <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/about_huggies/special_offers/bookoffer/">Member Exclusive Book Offers</a>.
