  • He's a baby, you can't do much other then praise when he listens, guide him, & redirect him. It's not right to hold him accountable for his actions, when he is only beginning to understand his world. When my 1 yr old was grinding his teeth I reacted & this seem to increase the grinding... I ignored it or would gently touch his chin. They are in constant state of change, this will pass.
    Try ignoring? Redirecting? Guiding? Praise when he does listen?

  • Not much you can do! My son is 2 and he still does it! He just wants the attention and he likes to wipe it up. The most you can really do is redirect him or ignore it.. If you draw attention to it and tell him not to do it, hes goign to continue!! They thrive on the attention.. weather it be negative or positive... They are testy little stinkers. :)
