you are soo right! he is not 10! i have a 11 yr old brother and 9 yr old sister, and they wouldn't even dream about carring on like my DS does with his dummy!! about anything!!!there would be no taking anything or not giving in!
i am concerned, do you have a 10 yr old that does?????

I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old. We got the dummy off my daughter but it became a struggle again when my son was born. This time we said enough is enough. We are expecting a 3rd in December which we are going to try and no use one at all. I figure if they don't know about it then there are other ways to calm a baby. We were so sick of looking for them and they were just boting on them. This easter the Easter Bunny took them all! We thought we would have a big tantrum but it was actually better then expected. Bed times have been a bit harder but you will find a way to get him to sleep comfortably without it. You really just need to take it and don't give in!
i agree, i AM being too soft and giving in to him crying, also cos he often won't sleep during the day with out it, he will just play with his toys/sheets. so i give it to him to make my life easier. but i won't change the fact that i don't want him to have it and and i still want to get rid of it!!! personally i don't think they are all that hygenic either!
