My 17 month old only has four tiny front teeth. He now has found a habit of grinding them. I'm worried he will iether hurt his teeth or won't be able to break this habit. How can I prevent teeth grinding on such a small lil guy?

Yuck, that is SO annoying! But most babies do it, just try not to react to it, otherwise he'll do it just to interact with you, and then it might become a habit. I found my son did this when he was teething, I think it was all just so uncomfortable he couldn't stand it. But when he was finished teething, he stopped.
