  • i think they make retainer things....i would ask your doctor or dentist. i think it is something that can cause problems.

  • i dont think they can do anything at that age. Anything small enough to fit in their mouth would be a choking hazzard.

    not sure what they could do though. might call your local pediatric dentist.

  • My 3 ds's did that at about that age. It is a phase that they went through and then quit that and moved on to making the choking noises. Now, that one freaked me out. They were experimenting with the different things that they were discovering that they could do.
