Dummies all in the name of peace

The other day I went swimming( ie I just sat in the hot tub and J went swimming)  whilst Mr T went going at the Belfry hotel. So going through the the swimming pool reception , there was a young mum there with her toddler dummy stuck in mouth. Sure the little girl was cute enough , she said " I am going swimming " half garbled through her dummy.

So we get to the  pool and I hibernate in the hot tub and J does line swimming, and then the toddler enters with her mum and proceeds to go swimming with the dummy in her mouth!!!!!! No I am sure that this is not hygienic. You probably have your own thoughts about dummies, I don't like them myself I never used them, and as I also teach speech and language it doesn't help a child with their own letter and sound formation to have a dummy stuck in their mouth.

What are your thoughts on children and dummies?

  1. I've got to agree with you there. I can understand that they serve a purpose, and my daughter had one for a few weeks when she was very small, because she had suck a strong suck reflex, but we took it away at 12 weeks as she was more interested in sucking the dummmy than feeding. I hate to see children who are old enough to function independently still chewing on a dummy (I've known quite a few of school age, and that's just way too far to me)
