Tell him the dummy fairy needs the dummies for all the little babies who are being born. My friend used to have a pretty little bag that her daughter used to leave it in every morning and them collect it in the night. Then one day she explained that if it was left over night the fairy would give it to a baby and a present would be left instead. She went the next day and got her present and lots of attention for being so kind and it was never mentioned again. Good luck!!

Answered by: Proud Welsh mum who juggles caring for a two year old girl and a four month old boy with running a restaurant with her husband and working as a hr manager for a solicitors (although on maternity from that one at the moment!). Particularly pleased with her quick births with little pain relief and how well Breastfeeding has been established.
