    This was on the news here tonight and I couldnt get over how stupid some people would be to do this....

    basically, the dummy tit is not empty like the usual type - they are filled with Honey, and some of the dummies are leaking - but wtf would you give a baby a dummy filled with Honey - honey is HIGHLY dangerous to little ones under 12mths :x

    Well it's not going to do their developing teeth much good either!

    I'm sure that I had a friend once, years ago, who said she was born premature and she had to be fed honey on a dummy to be saved or something similar.........never really been too sure about that really.

    I agree though, it's pretty stupid. :x

    People need to be educated about infant boutitism - it will and can kill a child.

    years ago everyone used to put honey on dummies. My mum has raised children in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s... only in the last 2-3 decades has it become bad.

    But now we know, i dont know how theres a market for it.
