Golly what's wrong with a dummy better than her screaming. Parents choice and none of our business
I do love that it's red and matches her outfit. Good luck to them.

I agree with the bolded, and especially with twins it would seem easier for them both to not have one and vice versa. I don't have anything against dummies on babies but I dislike seeing them on toddlers and small children because IMO they are too old for them. I remember seeing old photos of Camille once, and she still seemed to have her dummy at the age of six (not that I'm saying Gabriella will be the same, by the way. Some children can grow out of their dummies).
Apparently, ..... I see very few 12 year olds in this area with a pacifier in their mouths. Come to think of it, I don't recall seeing anyone over the age of two (if then) with one in their mouth.

The twins are beautiful and thriving. Too adorable to put them in mini-Monegasque costume, and they are growing hair to boot!

But I agree with everyone who expresses concern about Gabriella and the pacifier. She had one at her baptism, at Albert's enthronement celebrations, at their photo session in June, and now today. I want to see her pretty little face for a change. Does she cry and throw a fit if you take it away from her?

If a baby has a dummy or not is the parents decision same as when to start toilet training. There is no problem with babies having dummies in fact some studies into SIDS show it helps. If being taken out in front of a whole lot of strangers and children upset her I would rather she had her comfort item eg. Dummy than been upset just to please people.
As I have often said to the parents of the babies and children I cared for. They won't start school with a dummy and in nappies so relax and enjoy your baby and don't listen to the know all's who know nothing about your baby. IMO

Oh lol, now I realise that sentence sounded a bit strange. What I was trying to say was that some children grow out of their dummies quicker than others so Gabriella might grow out of hers by the time she is a toddler, or even earlier.

In my area (I live in the London suburbs) it's defiantly not unusual for small children (between the ages of 2-5) to have dummies, but most of them only use them at night as I've rarely seen a child older than two with a dummy in public. I remember my mother saying that when my cousin was a small child, to try and get her to stop using her dummies my aunt would hide them around the house, however my cousin would still manage to work out where they were. She obviously grew out of having a dummy though!

I love little Gabriella in her Monegasque dress. And Jacques is really growing into his looks(if that makes sense).

But it is unnecessary.
If you don't start using them right away, the baby won't develop a dependency and there will be no problem.

The article is nice with big pictures but as usual Daily Mail is calling them wrongly as "royal family"....

More photos from Paris Match
The twins looked fascinated by the whole show.

I didn't expect to see G&J in a monegasque costume until the national day in November. So it's a nice surprise to see the 2 cuties at the picnic.

Thanks, melina p. Lovely clear pictures. A beautiful smile from P Gabriella. Can you read what it says on her dummy?

It looks like a "I love Mummy" dummy, I first thought it was a "I love Monaco"

I thought they would wear traditional dress here as opposed to National Day purely because November can be quite cold and the national costume is more of of a Summery nature.

Without going into the sucking reflex in great detail as it would be way of topic many babies need more sucking time than others that can cause great pain etc for the mother. A dummy can make a great difference in settling a baby. Once again parents choice not for us to decide.
