My daughter just turned two and she has started a habit that i can't stand! She just started grinding her teeth when she is either bored, playing, sleeping, ANYTIME! I just want to know if there is any mum that has had this problem and how to stop it or when it does stop?

my younger brother had this problem as a kid...we actually spoke with a dentist about it a7 believe it or not the dentist said it was his way of dealing with stress....I know stress at such a young age...he told us at night especially that warm baths would help relieve the stress & that it would help with the overnight grinding & it really did...during the day if he would do it we would try to distract him with another activity or something more "fun"

we've had that problem off and on for over a year. we've tried telling her it's not good for her teeth (she loves brushing them now by herself) and distraction. sometimes those work, other time's we get out a healthy crunch snack like an apple or a carrot and usually after she's done snacking the grinding stops.
