Q.

Dummy

Hi Doctor

My LG is 6 months and when she was 4 months I introduced the dummy. Now at night she gets up everytime it falls out she mouth. I get up about 6 times to put it back.

Please help with advise to stop this habit. I have tried letting her cry but she just cries and cries and wakes up my 3 year old.

Thanks
