All my other children had a dummy and looking back through the photo albums it seems they always had that ugly piece of plastic stuck in there mouths so this time I made a conscious effort not to buy one for Scott. They also just got really dependent on them and when it fell out I was forever being woken up to put it back in. However now he really seems to just want to suck, anything! His bib, his fist, my finger, my chin and he gets so upset. The only thing that calms him down is a cuddle and a bounce in my arms. He even sucks an invisible dummy in his sleep bless him! He won't suck his thumb though (which I'm glad about lol) So shall I give in and buy him a dummy? Am I being cruel not giving him something to comfort him? I googled it and a couple of sites say apparently babies NEED to suck something, it's not a choice it is a need for them so now I'm really worried that I am just denying him the comfort he needs? Just for the record, it isn't all the time he cries, only a couple of times a day. He really is a happy baby and even rocking/bouncing him in my arms sends him of to sleep in less than 5 minutes. What do you think? To dummy or not to dummy? xxx Tapatalking so can't see sigs or click thanks!
