Community Questions - Should my baby have a dummy?

'What are your thoughts on dummies? I feel like there's shame around them.'

Ultimately, whether your little one has a dummy or not is completely your decision and shouldn't be up to any one else to pass judgement. If they aren't for you then that's totally fine but if your little one uses them and soothes from having one, then great!

It is noted that the main advantage of babies using a dummy is that they can satisfy their sucking instincts if they’re not breastfed. 'Using dummies can calm babies and help them to fall asleep.' Breast fed babies can also use a dummy, it's really completely up to you as the parent!

At Carol HQ we're a mixture of using dummies for our little ones and not, so no judgement here either way! You do what works for you mama!
