  • When mine grind his teeth at that age I always said "oh what an ucky noise" and handed him a teething ring to chew on, or some other toy that's intent was for chewing. We had "chewies" little vibrating sticks whose intention is for babies to chew on them. Either way I don't know if the commenting helped or not, but I couldn't stand the noise and offering the chewy definitely helped.
