  • You can't stop it. It's very normal and causes no harm at all. Both of my babies did can also sound like grinding. The pediatrician said it's normal and just a phase.

  • You can't. It's a phase and these things will come and go.

  • My son is 5 and I actually just called the dentist yesterday because he grinds his teeth at night. She said there is nothing you can do right now. They will grow out of it. It doesn't effect their adult teeth.
