I'm with Stephanie. Make sure she has access to safe toys that she can chew on... cause she's going to chew. It helps relieve the pain with teething (due to the pressure of the toy on her gums) and it is a great way for our babies to learn about different things, by putting it in their mouths. My daughter chews on EVERYTHING. She's 14mo old and just now starting to not stick every single thing in her mouth but still, the vast majority of stuff heads straight to her mouth. It's amazing how much cleaner I've kept my carpet since she started rolling around lol.

That's what babies do. They're learning about texture and such. Keep harmful things out of reach--medicine, allergens, choking hazards, etc.

Give her opportunities to chew on different and new textures, like safe toys, teething rings, cooked veggies, fruit. :)

Depending on her age, she also might be teething. So she could be relieving the pain and pressure by chewing. my nephew is doing this right now, he's 3 mos. but at a year old, they get their first set of molars.

You'll just have to keep an eye on her. :)
