  • It's normal, just don't say anything or react to it so that she doesn't want to do it more to get a reaction from you.She'll eventually stop. Just remember, these aren't their permanent teeth.

  • My 13 month old just started doing this the other day! It is super annoying. I'd like to know if it's normal as well, LOL.

  • my son does that... his father apparently used to do it to. It drives me crazy and I am always afraid hes going to hurt his tiny little teeth.

  • My son does the same thing I think he is doing it because hes still getting teeth and has the urge to bite down even if there is nothing in his mouth to bite on I guess we'll see if it stops once he gets in all of his teeth
