    I take the dummy away from my kids when they're about a yr old. That being said, none of them have ever put up that big of a fight. They've been kind of ready I think

    Both my boys gave their up at their own free will. Kameron at 8mths and Lachlan at 5mths.

    Love

    We only really had dummies for sleeping towrds the end anyway, but just before her first birthday we just got rid of them all, and that was that.
    I think just do it, probably the younger the better habit wise, but in saying that, if your child loves a dummy..... sometimes its easier just to let them have it!

    Lily is 2 in a couple of weeks and she still has her dummy but only really when she is being shy with strangers and when she's cranky. She gave it up during the day at around 18mths and for sleeping about a week ago.
