Did anyone have a Wee Thumbie dummy?????


Cameron was given a "Wee Thumbie" dummy in the neonatal unit to help his suck reflex. He now refuses to take any other kind of dummy - I have had every size, shape, style, you name it I have it in this house!! I cant get him to take anything he just gags and cries, the only thin that will settle him is the thumbie. This would be ok if it wasnt so tiny - it is designed for babies under 4lb!! Good know how this wee thing settles him but it does, spoke to the cleft palate nurse who says he shouldnt be gagging on any dummy as his Haberman bottle goes right to the back of his throat and that doesnt make him gag so its just him really. I dont know what else to try - anyone have any suggestions????? I've tries weaning him off the dummy too but he cries and cries till he makes hiself sick which is just causing more problems with his airway tube, etc. Please someone come up with some fantastic idea or make me a brand new big thumbie!!
