Daniel and the Dummy Fairy Book
The children's picture book Daniel And The Dummy Fairy Book, may help your child to ditch their dummy with less stress.
As the Mother of 2 dummy suckers, our Dummies assisted both of my premature babies to learn to suck. I also love that dummy sucking is linked to a reduced risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
There is a time, place, and age for dummy sucking.
Most parents choose to Ditch the Dummy age 1.5 -2.5 years as the dentist suggests ditching the Dummy.
So why do the experts say that Dummies should never be a long term comforter?
Dentists discourage mouth breathing, which is common in dummy suckers. This can lead to structural changes to the lips, tongue, palate and mandible. The consequence of this may be overcrowding of teeth and jaw misalignment.
Speech Pathologists say that Dummy sucking, especially talking through a Dummy, can affect the sounds made by the letters S, Z, SH, CH, T, D & N.
Pacifiers promote forward tongue carriage, which can cause decreased clarity of speech ( a lisp ). Initial speech therapy consult $250
Doctors also feel that some toddlers sucking a dummy have three times more ear infections than a non-dummy sucker.
How to remove a Dummy in a calm and kind manner?
Are you aware that child psychologists suggest that parents talk to their child about taking away their Dummy at least 10 times before you actually do it?
Have a planned approach and never snatch a Dummy.
Many parents choose to remove their child’s dummy by saying that the Dummy Fairy took them. The children’s book “Daniel and the Dummy Fairy” is purpose-written to help toddlers visualise what will happen when Daisy the Dummy Fairy comes to visit and collect all of the dummies.
Children love that they can see Daisy and her Fairy friends, learn about her favourite food and even see what happens to the dummies after she collects them. This book will give you an opportunity to talk about what is about to happen with your child and better prepare them for the Dummy Fairies' visit and the departure of their Dummy forever.
Daisy the Dummy Fairy has a very special job to do. When children grow big enough to give away their dummies, she flutters into their house at night to collect them, leaving every child a surprise to find in the morning!
Daniel has just turned two and is ready to give away his dummies. Read this children’s picture book so that your child can see what happens when Daniel meets Daisy the Dummy Fairy?

Daniel's story : My son used his dummy both as as a tactile object with his hands and in his mouth when going to sleep. By age 2, we replaced that with a soft toy. He had two slightly upset days where he asked for it at nap time and then he completely forgot about it.
