Dummies! Lock Rss


I have a 15 month old and expecting number 2 in 8 weeks!

I was just wondering about dummies!
My first baby had colic adn reflux (poor thing) and cried alot.
I don't think I can handle all the crying again so am going to get a dummy.
And just so i can use it if need be, who knows this bub might be happy as!
My first wouldn't take one, would spit out!

But after you have established breastfeeding, 6 weeks I think they say you can introduce one.

So I am wondering how you mums out there with newborns/infants get on with Dummies.
I will breast feed again so am asking teh breastfeeding mums out there which dummies they would reccomend?
And if dummies have interfered with breast feeding?

I am opting for the Tommie Tippie 0-6months latex at the moment as I have seen mums using this and still breastfeeding?

So anyone out there who has any feedback on teh Dummy adn breastfeeding issue I would love to her from you!

Thanks smile

DS was breastfed, had reflux and loved the Avent 0-3 mths silicone dummy. It never interferred with his BF.

DD has reflux and wind pain and I have just tried three different dums with her but she either spits them out or chokes on them, so maybe just get one to start with.

I was also told the 6 week mark for introducing one.

Hi there!
My 5 month old DD uses the Happy Baby brand dummies (started off with the 0-3mth one!) and she has been using then since day 3!
They never interfered with her feeding (as I am currently still happily BF'ing).. Also, they are the ones hospitals recommend and use, so they must be good!
Anyway, good luck in your hunt for dummies- I know and trust Happy Baby so therefore would be happy to recommend them to you!

I use all tommee tippee ones (orthadontic latex) they never interfeered with bf and were the only ones that he could hold in his mouth, I found the avent ones to short and flat.
I also use the tommee tippee closer to nature bottles, I started on them when using expressed milk as the avent ones made him gag, I now full formula feed and find they are great

He was also given a dummy on day 3 by the midwives and had no probs bfing at all the tommee tippee one was recomended by the mw and my chn (the ones i use are called trndy comforters they are sparkly and do not pool dribble like the avent and happy baby)
I tried DS with a dummy and he used it in the hospital (after recommendations from the Midwife as he was apparently using me as a dummy!) it was the Happy brand but once I got him home he only used it occasionally and now would much prefer his hand so I don't bother with it. Has never interfered with my breastfeeding.

Both my sons have used the NUK brand, they are also silicone teats. No problems with BF.
