Mum just phoned and told be about nan (see other post)
and she said my brother went out and got Evie a dummy and mum let Evie have it Tell Off
because she cried for it so mum has let her have it,
Evie i 21 months
and not had a dummy since she was about 14 months
i could not really have a go at mum about it because my nan is ill and she is upset Sad
but im so p*ssed off no way is my child having a dummy when it tuck us months to get her off one Sad
mum has not had Evie for awhile over night maybe she give her it because she was unsettled?
but to just give her a dummy when she knows how hard it was for me and John to take it away
oh it's going straight in the bin and i will defo be having words!

yea, that would make me upset too! I guess go a little easy though given the situation, maybe it might make it a little more forgivable? good luck with getting it back from Evie now!

I also did the cold turkey hun,it sounds bad but as hayley said in two or three days they forget about it.
We offered our DS a glass of milk (sippi cup)before bed time and he gave up his bottle pretty quick but he did take a little longer to settle than usual.
My FIL called me "hitler mum" because i didnt give my DS his dummy when he cried. (my nephew will be 5 soon and still has his at night)but once it was gone it was gone for good just stick to your guns. Hug
