It's Like Nails on Chalkboard!

Egad! Jonah has been grinding his teeth lately. It makes my skin crawl!

    Selena did that too, still does every now and then, I give her a teether toy and say bite this don't grind your teeth, she smiles and bites the toy!

    I hope when he gets a few months older he will understand that. He does it in my ear and it makes me cringe.

    Try giving him a teether, I know the feeling it makes me cringe! Selena started doing that around 9 months and I have been redirecting her behavior since.

    I'll try the ring again. Last time I gave it to him, he refused. He'll chew on bottle nipples now and that is it. It used to be snuffed toys.

    As long as it helps him from not grinding his teeth right! I think its been a month since Selena did it last.

    Thanks for the advice. I am going to try the ring again. He had just started this yesterday, and I was not sure what the sound was but now I know. :)
    I thought maybe it was just him and other babies did not do it.

      I don't if they do it because they are discovering they have teeth or what But, if they are, isn't there a better way of discovering? lol
