Ditching the dummy thanks to The Dummy Fairy

By | February 11, 2014

With Little Sis turning 2 at the end of last year I was acutely aware that she needed to ditch her dummy. She adored her dummy very much and although we had restricted it to half an hour before bed and through the night I knew we needed to do something about getting rid of it completely.

Her older brother gave his dummy up very easily but I had a feeling Little Sis would be a little more stubborn and it made me really nervous! She is quick to give me her opinion on everything and can throw a tantrum when she doesn’t get her own way. When I heard about The Dummy Fairy  Workshop I knew I needed her help and she very kindly sent me a Magical Bits’n’Bobs Kit to make the transition to being dummy-free.

We chose a day to be Dummy Day and every day I talked to Little Sis about giving up her dummy, letting the Dummy Fairy take it away and give it to a little baby who needed one. She was pretty adamant that no-one was taking her dummy away….

The Kiddie’s Kit contained a letter from the Queen of the Dummy Fairy, an Enchanted Dummy Bag, a bottle of fairy dust, a picture of the Dummy Fairy to colour in and a reply card to send to the Dummy Fairy.

As well as the instructions mentioned above the Parents Kit contained a Thank You letter from the Queen to read to your child, a personalised certificate of Generosity and gift tags to attach to the Certificate and a gift.

For some reason I thought we would just try putting Little Sis to bed without a dummy. Guess what? She went to bed without any problems. And the next night too.

We’re still going to colour the picture of the Queen, and Little Sis will receive her Certificate, the Thank You letter and a special present for giving up her dummy and officially becoming a Big Girl. I’m still totally amazed she gave up her dummy but I think that talking about it and being firm definitely helped. The Magical Bits’n’Bobs Kit from The Dummy Fairy Workshop gave me the added confidence to fix a date and do it. The Kit was really comprehensive, I love the fact it was personalised with names and photographs and was great value at £19.95 + P&P.

    Great that your little one had a fairly stress-free transition to become dummy-free.

    Thats a nice idea.. I have to admit I went hard line with my daughter and just took it off her at 18 months. If I’d known about this (or if she’d kicked up more of a fuss) then I’d have definitely looked into it.
