  • My son did that for a while. He stopped on his own. I don't think you can do anything about it. It was so loud!

  • My son did it from 6 months until 6 years. He stopped when he started losing some teeth.

  • the dentist will probablly give him a mouth gaurd. My 3.8 y/o grinds his teeth but only when he is awake.
