A book to encourage your child to stop using his dummy.
There’s so much conflicting advice in books and from friends, it is difficult to know exactly what to do. Dummies can be good, they are linked to reduced risk of sudden infant death syndrome. It is also a great form of soothing. Research shows that weaning should start between six months and a year old, but lots of children use dummies to soothe and calm themselves well into their second year. Dummies can relieve stress and help your child adjust to new or challenging situations, such as starting school or getting a new sibling. However a different soothing item such as a cuddly toy/favourite blanket may work just as well. Read this book often to your child so he can be encouraged to stop using his dummy.
Children go through distinct periods of development as they move from infants to young adults. During each stage multiple changes in the development of the brain are taking place. Ages and stages is a term used to broadly outline key periods in the human development timeline. Stages include physical, intellectual, language, social and emotional. Brave Books offers a number of titles that cover these exciting yet challenging years.
Many books have been written others are coming soon.
