what do you give them to make them stop, if anything?





 



Get a clean wash rag wet with cold water and put it in the freezer until it starts to become firm.



 



Let him chew on that. They love it.

I don't have any kids myself, yet, but my little niece did this too... It think they're just exploring their new teeth!

Quoting Jessica:

Yes, both of my boys did it. What a horrible sound... I think it has to do with putting pressure on the teeth that make it feel better.

yes, i did it as a baby my mom told me, and my 19 month old started doing it too, my 5 year old even does it in her sleep, the grinding helps take away from the pain of teething,

nothing worked for my kids, you can try some type of teether that isn't squishy. Maybe a pacifier?
