How do I stop...

...my baby from grinding his teeth?

My 10-month-old son has his two bottom front teeth and the upper tooth to the left of his front teeth poking through. He has been rubbing those bottom teeth against that top nub and I'm worried it's going to chip, cause a problem with it's growth, or hurt him! He's not too interested in teething toys... I've tried that.

Has any mom here had this issue? What can I do to stop the grinding?

Yes my daughter has been doing this about a month now. I haven't found a way to stop or discourage it :(

So weird! I've never heard of this! Ah!

Does your daughter seem really uncomfortable when she's teething pretty bad?

It's normal, nothing you can really do. Baby is just testing out the new teeth.

Yes she gets super cranky and uncomfortable while teething.

The only time my son is really fussy is nighttime. I give him a small dose of children's Motrin and it helps a lot, but my husband doesn't like it when I "pump our son with chemicals" lol Do you use meds for your baby to take the edge off?

We usually use the highlands natural teething tablets. But sometimes we use pain reliever, not often though. But I do use it 48 hours after shots because my dr reccomends it.

Oh yea! The tablets! I need to get those. Could a 10-mo chew them easily you think?
