  • my daughter did this drove me insane! i hate that sound. but the doc said it was normal and they are just playing with their new teeth. she grew out of it after about 1 1/2 to 2 months.

  • oh, he also said that it felt better when she was teething to put the pressure on her teeth, so when she started it while she was awake i always tried to give her something to chew on, didn't always work but sometimes it did.
