  • Just keep stopping him or maybe give him something to chew on like a cold wash cloth so he grids his teeth on that instead

  • Ask your doc at his next appointment. He/she may have some solutions.

  • I would give him something to teethe on when he does that, or give him a snack, my son did that at about 10 months and I figured out that he would do that when his teeth were bothering him.

  • How long has this been going on? My son did that when he got his first teeth, but it didn't last long. Someone just told me they do it as long as their teeth bother them.

  • He will eventually stop. DD did that for about a month and just when I thought I was going to lose my mind, she stopped. Try giving him a teether, it might help.

  • These are lots of good ideas. I hope the grinding won't wear down or harm his teeth.
