Annabelle used to grind her teeth when she was around 9 months. The doctor said this usually happens when babies are sleep deprived. He was surprised when I told him she takes two one hour naps a day and sleeps 12 hours at night. He said she could be cutting a tooth. When she grinds try and distract her with a toy or talking to her. That's exactly what we did and she stopped a month later when two new teeth poked through.
