And thankfully this week Thomas has all but kicked his dummy habit!
On Tuesday his chin had come up in a bit of a saliva rash, and drooling with his dummy in place was not helping! So Tuesday night I popped him to bed as usual, but couldn't see a dummy on his dresser and couldn't be bothered hunting one down, so tucked him in, kissed his head and closed the door. Not a whimper, grizzle or trip out of bed all night! Fluke?
So Wednesday I had his carer put him down without his dummy for his day sleep = same thing!
Wednesday night, no problem. Same goes for Thursday day sleep.
Speedbump on Thursday night - a 45 minute performance of crying, screaming and hopping in and out of bed! No dummy tho, we left his door open as a compromise, and it worked!
So we're 3 days and dummy free - amen!
