My DD did this for about two weeks straight. I would distract her with something else or tell her to bite a chewy toy or stick her soother in. She just liked the sound of it. She also understood when I said "don't grind your teeth, icky" and she would grin and shake her head no that I knew she understood. It was a really short phase and she's stopped doing it so hopefully your little one will stop too.

I don't know but it can file her teeth down grinding them. Aries used to grind his teeth for the longest time and i couldn't get him to stop. The first time he went to the dentist the dentist could tell he was grinding his teeth because the enamel on his front teeth was filed down. Maybe you could call a dentist about it. Aries stopped when the dentist told him to or he would have to have work done on them. He hates having work done on his teeth so he stopped.

Nothing, Jayden did this as well.  I think they just do it because it's a new sound.  Eventually he just stopped on his own.  I would just throw a pacifier in his mouth every time he would do it.  But as he grew more teeth in, he would just stop grinding.  It's only when he had the bottom 2 and the top 4 that he began to grind.
