Thank you for your kind words. Don't try too hard to get your little one off the dummy.You will find that she will give it up by herself.You could simply stop giving her the dummy which will make her very unhappy for a few days and then she will forget about it. Another way is to cut a small piece off the end of the dummy and then slowly day by day cut a little bit more off each time. When there is nothing left to suck on your little girl may not want her dummy any more.
