My wee girl has just turned 4 and still uses her dummy at night in bed. This is the only time she has it but does get very distressed when she miss places it however I would love her to not have it.. Any suggestions on how I do this?

I used the Dummy Fairy technique (after watching Super Nanny) with my son, and it worked a treat but I bought a kit from www.dummyfairies.com. It was just beautiful. It's completely made from scratch for your toddler. They get a letter in the post, a dummy bag, fairie dust and everything. Nate had about 15 dummies and wouldn't sleep without one. It was fabulous.

cut a slit in the pacifier so there is really no suction, they don't like it as much, when she asks about it tell her you must be a big girl now and it is broken. A friend of mine actually bought a new one upon her daughters request since one was "broken" and cut the new one put it back in the package, then opened it in front of her and gave her a new broken one.

the thing that worked best for my son was to tell him everychance i had that his binky was nasty and he was a big boy and didn't need it anymore. after a few weeks of doing that one day he came in the kitchen while i was making breakfast and said nasty mommie and then he threw it in the trash and never wanted it again. this also worked with my daughter. can't make any promises but it is worth a shot it might work for your daughter also. good luck
