adjusting the volume video

Remember a few weeks ago I asked if anyone else’s kids fiddle with their dummies and tuning it in? I have a little video of Kristian doing it and thanks to flickr’s new video feature, can share it with all of you too :)

He is mostly only turning it one way in this video but mostly when they do it, it’s a few twists one way then a few back the other. Maybe it wasn’t loud enough or something on this day ;)

question: re fine tuning of a dummy/pacifier

I’m trying to determine if my children are just really strange, or if this is a normal behaviour.

So I’m asking this of other parents of children who have used a dummy/pacifier/whatever. Do they try to tune it in, or adjust the volume or whatever? What I mean by this is they get the handle and they twist it around once or twice one way and then the other way and maybe back a bit the other way, until it is apparently “just right”. Both Abigail and Kristian do it. So is it a normal thing for children to do with their dummies; or is Abigail a strange freak and Kristian learned it off her; or are they both strange freaks who came upon the habit as a result of genetics? Likely I wouldn’t be able to determine between the two latter options, but you can help me to figure out if it’s the first :)
