controlled crying and dummies
next week when OH is off work we're going to do controlled crying with Evie. i'm really confused though about dummies. they way i look at it is, through CC we are trying to teach her to self settle and to soother herself back to sleep without a cuddle or a bottle or any fuss from mum and dad. therefore surely if when i go back in the room i give her her dummy... i'm teaching her to rely on her dummy to be soothed? am i right in thinking this? i dont want to create extra work for us if she begins to settle.... then dummy falls out and bang - back to square one cuz she'll cry for it. my MIL seems to think i should be giving her the dummy though. what do you think?
