I tried all different sizes and types of dummy when Arlo was tiny and comfort sucking was his favourite hobby. Instead, he prefered the ultimate dummy – me.
The result being that I now have a big stash of dummies that I can’t give away as, technically, they have been used (for all of two seconds before he spat it out).
However….I am pleased to announce that the dummies are now back in action.
Arlo may not be using it in the manner originally intended, but chewing, holding, and inspecting a dummy is the only thing that will persuade him to lie on his back whilst I change his nappy.
The changing mat, the carpet and my clothes are thankful to the dummies for their service during this difficult time of increasing mobility.
