Dummies make a baby ugly and should be banned.
Just because a parent doesn't have the patience to tend to a babies need they feel its fair to stump the kids ability to speak and form sentences putting them behind when they start school.

LOL my LO has a dummy and she's been able to talk since i cant remember and string sentences together since the age of 18 months which is more than most children near me!! so i don't agree with that statement.

Your a **** idiot simple it has no bearing on patience nor tending to a childs needs I guess your arguement counts for thumb/finger sucking and the like too, funny how children/babies have been doing that since the dark ages isnt it this is just a modern day equivalent. As for language skills if the child wants to talk they will promptly spitting out said dummy.

You clearly do not have children .

I have had two children and never had any desire or need for a dummy/soother/pacifier.

I don't like them and only saw them being used on young babies years ago. Nowadays you see kids as old as three and four walking around with them plunged in their mouths. It looks awful.

Anyway, anything free is a good thing!

Exactly why I posted my comment.
It stumps their learning because they are walking around with a hideous dummy in their mouth not saying anything at all, only making baby grunts at almost 2 years of age. Instead they could be walking around speaking, learning how to form words correctly and interacting with people.

I have 2 kids, neither have had dummies. They are both ahead in class (I say in class, my youngest is in pre-school but has been moved up with the kids a year older) and speaking very clearly. If parents were to be more patient instead of jamming a dummy in their kids mouth simply because they are crying then they would see there really isn't any need for them.

And no Nailez, if I child wants to speak they will not promptly spit the dummy out, they will try & speak with it in their mouth.
This is simply my opinion, each to their own I guess

yeah 3 or 4 year old is a bit rediculous with a dummy in there mouth, my lo is 2 n a half, and we are giving our dummies to santa in a few weeks! and she only has dummies at bed time! but i agree with much older children theres no need, but if they want a dummy they instead will be thumb sucking.
if your children didnt have dummies did they thumb suck instead.......

No, but I think that is because they didn't have dummies. Once a dummy is taken away the child will naturally want to suck on something so finds their thumb. I know some kids will suck their thumb anyway, but mine never have.

Surely you can see my point though having a 2 & a half year old. Around the 13 - 18 month stage I bet she made noises that sounded like words or tried to speak and without the dummy she probably would have succeeded quicker? I'm not talking about saying dad and mum because they do that at about 7-8 months onwards, but more complicated things. I know my opinion came across a bit strong & got some peoples backs up but that's only because I have strong views on this.

By the age of 2 both my daughters have been able to tell the time and both fully toilet trained. This maybe down to a number of things but I feel mainly due to not having a dummy as it's allowed greater understanding and communication.

no it didnt affect her speech as i posted previously above a few posts up, i could have full conversation with her at 18 months

and as for toilet training, every child is different.... i do not believe its down to them having a dummy or not to wether they are toilet trained quicker. every child is different the world would be a very boring place if they were the same

Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged.

Some people do nothing other than troll this site to be judgemental. Dummie or no dummie, potty trained early or not. The prime importance is a happy healthy child and I am sure if dummies were detrimental to that the Goverment would have banned them a long time ago.

Some peeps must believe they are perfect and do everything perfect too!

Just a side note on the "my child is top of the class", let me guess they are the oldest in the class?

Kids born early in the school year do worse than those born at the latest points in the school year thats a proven fact and that has more of an impact than a dummy.

So then a breast fed baby doesn't get used sucking then and find the sucking to be comforting ? Your arguement is completely flawed and your 'experience' with just 2 kids gives you the ability to tell the millions of others parents that they are wrong , lol ... you couldn't make that up !
Btw all my kids passed their A Levels at the age of 9 and all 12 of them had dummies until they were almost 2 years old.
I guess that proves it then , your kids in comparison are far from mainstream and they probably attend a 'special' school if they are top of the class.
Every child is different so for you to come out with ridiculous claims like that is just showing that perhaps you are not the brightest star in the sky .....

Oh one more thing , my youngest is just 2 weeks old now and you reckon that a dummy might stop him actually talking to me , stringing whole sentances together ?? Not forgetting these dummies are for babies and nobody mentioned 'toddler' dummies or using the dummies for kids starting school !!
