I have a thing for my dummy(paci) I love it, its so relaxing to wake up with in your mouth and does more to make me feel small and helpless than anything else even a nappy!
But he's the thing, although I can remember using one as a child when it was taken away i never sucked my thumb or anything, I've never had any oral fixations like chewing pen tops or biting my nails and consequently I dont suck! Or at least not absentmindedley, it's all conscious effort and then when I wake up half the time its gone missing, if it is there then i wake as soon as I realise it in the morning but I realise I still havent been sucking its just because it a nuk5 and it stayed in by itself,
And so I have two questions,
ONE has anyone ever developed this to the point where they do use them properly and suck (I would love for this to happen)
TWO is it more natural for thumsuckers to switch and use a dummy or do you just wake up having spat the dummy in favour of your thumb!
