Call it a dummy, pacifier, soother etc., parents can have very different views on dummies. Some think of them as a great option to soothe their little one while others don’t have such a high opinion of them.
A dilemma many parent face is whether to give their little one a dummy or not. There is no right or wrong answer, basically as parents we have to do what works best for us and our babies.
While for some babies accepting a dummy and using it to fall asleep all through the night is no problem. However, a common problem that can occur is when a little one loses their dummy in the night and so starts a round of what we call ‘the dummy runs’. Your little one wakes and becomes distressed when they can’t find their dummy and you spend your time trying to locate it and pacify them again.
Another anxious time is when you decide that it’s time for your little one to move ahead without their dummy. This can be a particularly challenging time when your little one doesn’t see it quite the same way.
The good news is that if you do decide to give your little one a dummy, you can avoid these major challenges by using the Sleepytot Baby Comforter.
The Sleepytot Baby Comforter has been designed to specifically hold your little ones dummy in place – so no more “dummy runs”. Also it allows a much smoother transition for you and your little one when you decide it’s time for them to let go of their dummy. Your little one will still have the comfort of their Sleepytot Bunny even when the dummy is no longer there.
