  • Pretty annoying, isn't it? It will stop; you can try giving her things to chew on, like a frozen damp washcloth. Our best solution was a dog toy.

  • she'll stop. teeth are a new sensation in the mouth so she's probably just feeling around! my son did it A LOT but eventually stopped. as far as I know it wont cause any damage to the teeth. i'm sure there are ways to help stop her, but i'm not too sure.

  • Oh my gosh my son is doing the same thing! He's cutting his top 2. The sound gives me chills - like nails on a chalkboard! Thanks for asking on here!
