Top Tip_: Dummy / Pacifier Control

If you, like me, have a toddler with a passion for rubber mouth plugs then I have worked out a cunning way to limit the amount of dummy usage and encourage self relaxation. Simply put the dummy in the cot and never take it out. The baby quickly learns to associate dummies with cots. This has two effects. One it makes the idea of having a dummy less attractive, Two - it helps the baby relax when he/she is in the cot. It works wonders. Rip never has a dummy now unless he is in his cot. Next tip will be how to get the toddler off the dummy altogether, problem is I haven't worked that one out yet :)
