Parenting Whine and Sympathy #2: Ditching the Dummy

Weaning off dummy: Video tips from real mumsToday we hungout on Google+ again – and thanks to Google I have a brand new, fabulous url, so come join us there:

Uber-cool if I do say so myself, and so much easier to remember that the one before which you needed to have a degree in mathematics to remember.

We had on the chat Mari from Mari’s World and Victoria from Love Being a Mummy. Sadly Victoria’s connection was a little bit insane, so she dropped off. However, we chatted and gave some excellent advice around weaning off dummy including:

  • Reducing dummies from three down to one
  • Substitutes for dummies
  • What do use if yo have a boy and he won’t get the dummy fairy!

So come and listen in and, hopefully, learn!

If you like this, and think what we are trying to do at KiddyCharts is cool and innovate, then we would love a vote to try and get to the final of the Brilliance in Blogging Awards – just VOTE now. Thanks so much, your support really is appreciated! Voting closes at midnight on the 12th May.



Helen is a mum to two, and social media consultant and website editor. Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts now works with big family brands to help them promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. Helen also helps other organisations with their social media and blogging strategies, including working part-time as a community manager with Truprint. She can often be found hanging about on social media, and trying to avoid stepping on the Lego her kids keep leaving lying around.
