    Tyler keeps using my nipples like a dummy!

    Is there anything I can do bar giving him a dummy to help with this?

    We gave F a clean finger for the first few weeks but have now tried to switch to a dummy but she prefers a finger and you can always take it away so no chance of then getting addicted! Dunno if that helps.

    Dylan has been doing this too. I don't really want to give a dummy if I can help it but I have tried one and he won't take it. He will suck on my finger but I'm not that keen on that either! Will keep an eye on replies as may need some ideas x

    I used a dummy when he first came home and he got nipple confusion so never again! He doesn't seem to want my finger!
    I've been trying to put him to sleep since 9, but still laying here feeding him!

    My LO was the same if you can keep going like this till about 6 weeks then try a dummy. I attached to LO 24/7 she was on my boob every twenty mins at about 8 weeks she learnt to suck her hand so didnt have her dummy too much then.
