  Baby: Weaning – Demanding dummy
My baby has never used a dummy, but since I weaned him, he wants to suck one. I really don’t want to have a dummy problem. Should I refuse to let him have it?

In all likelihood this situation is temporary and your baby is just wanting a bit of extra comfort. It is not unusual for babies to suck a dummy for a few weeks or months after weaning, and then to lose interest. It is better to pay as little attention as possible to the dummy sucking and see if it diminishes on its own. The fact that your baby is feeling a bit insecure underlines the fact that this is not a good time for a battle of wits. Be patient and see what transpires.
