9 month DD grinds her 3 teeth together! Is this normal?

It is making me crazy. She just got her first top tooth and ever since it came in she scrapes it on her bottom teeth all the time. The sound makes me crazy and I know that it is not good for her. Is she just doing this because it is new? Will she stop? Thanks,Danni

My kids do this, but only occasionally. Is she doint it constantly or only here and there? If its just random times I wouldnt worry, but if she seems to be doing it ALOT then I might contact her PEdi. Alot of times you can call and just talk to a nurse

DJ went through that phase too...everyone I asked about it said that it was normal and would pass (which it EVENTUALLY did). The more of a big deal you make about it, the funnier they think it is to do it so try not to react when she's doing it...I know that's hard...I was ready to pull my hair out because it sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard! Good luck...hopefully it will pass sooner rather than later!

My first son did it too and it soon passed. Second son hasn't done it.

DS did this for a day or two several months back. I did my best to ignore it b/c saying anything just encouraged it. Thankfully he stopped. It drove me nuts!

My son did that for months, seriously months!! Since he has hydrocephalus and was a very early preemie he had an occupational therapist. She said it was totally normal and that many babies do it a lot because they realize it is a sound they can make.

By the way (aside from the hydro) Keegan is a perfectly normal pre-schooler now. I wouldn't worry at all.

Both of mine did it briefly when they only had a few teeth. Ooooh that was the worst sound! I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you think she's actually damaging her teeth.
