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.

KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!

Thanks so much Helen & Mari. Just had chance to catch up and loving the stealing lol! I've managed to find a fabulous fairy door which I've ordered and a few toy fairies and will be using in a few weeks/months to remove the 'dodo' called as the plan was they were soon to become extinct - it's just taking longer

Glad you like it my dear - sorry you couldn't make this one - and good luck with the soon to be extinct Dodo!
