We have not yet ventured to take ds's soother away but ....
all tips and suggestions welcome. Bailey is 5 days old and:
introducing soother - any tips? *
DS became dry soother dependent so had hoped to not use a soother but tonight she has had a huge increase in the need to suckle.
Wih DS some of the mistakes we made were a) giving it to him all the time and not just when he seemed to specifically need it (we have an urge to think it will help when they are crying without seeing if there is something else like cuddling that would work first) and popping it back in his mouth whenever he had popped it out.
A) days and nights are backwards. Almost no awake time during day and much more time awake at night. So I will try and stimulate her during day to reverse that.*
active night time bowels - hopefully will reverse once days and nights cleared up
(330am and we have slept 1.5 hours due to crying and feedings and poops).*
