Suddenly refuses to take the Dummy

4 mo.

Dear Rikke

It is difficult to say what is wrong, however, as your son does seem to seek and wants to suck and still wants his bottle but not his dummy, it seems to me that he might need a little extra milk ... i.e. he seeks the milk, and not the dummy, when he sucks, which is naturally anoying, as nothing gets out.

I therefore suggest you to try to increase his milk intake a little and then wait and see whether he little by little will accept the dummy again, when he is satisfied and calm and needs the suck a little in order to go to sleep.

I wish you and your twins the best of luck:o)

Kind regards,

Helen Hansen
