Hello, opinions on this vary, especially from lactation consultants, who strictly reject dummies whilst breastfeeding, but in my own experience, if you have the right breastfeeding technique, your daughter’s doing well and she holds onto the breast well, it is not a problem to give your daughter a dummy if she wants. It may be that some children do not want a dummy, then it is necessary to try repeatedly and, if necessary, to replace it with a dummy from other brands. Giving a dummy usually doesn’t mean that your daughter will start to refuse to breastfeed.Reply by: Doctor
Hello, we have been fighting our daughter’s insomnia for 3 weeks, the most she sleeps during the day is 5 minutes. Otherwise, she whines, sticks her fingers and fists into her mouth. Could it be teething, even if her gums are not swollen? Thank you Show moreFrom: Mom

Hello, I have a 14-month-old daughter. A while ago, she was sitting on a couch about 40 cm high and fell backwards on to the floor and hit her head. She cried right away, she wasn't unconscious, she had nothing on her head, just a lump started to form, but it wasn't bleeding. Now she’s laughing and playing as per usual. Should I go to A&E with her? Show moreFrom: Mom

A dummy during breastfeeding?
Hello, I now have a 3-week-old daughter, born at term, gaining weight well, breastfeeding fully. However, for the last few days, she wants to be on the breast nonstop. As soon as I put her aside, she sleeps for a while, but then she wakes up and nothing calms her except breastfeeding, so I sometimes even breastfeed every hour, day and night. I’m starting to get very tired. I’d like to ask if I can give her a dummy? Will it affect breastfeeding?
