My Miss 15month old grinds her teeth and it’s loud. I am not sure how to get her to stop, shes never had a dummy nor is she a biter, but she grinds her teeth whilst she’s awake and when she’s asleep. Hints/suggestions would be helpful please.

  • Little reminders for her. Youre grinding your teeth. Encorage some talking and answering. Even babble is good conversation . Is it teeth? bothering her?

  • A dentist might be able to give you some hints on how to get her to stop.

  • there are some good comments here

  • she will grow out of it in time

  • Hopefully they will grow out of it – otherwise I’d speak to your dentist as they have ways to help.

  • i hope it went well

  • Thankfully mine has nearly stopped doing this and only does it every so often

  • HOpe you find the answer you are looking for.

  • How is she going now?

  • I am hoping for you its just a phase thing

  • Hopefully you have by now found a solution. She is probably just getting used to all her teeth and hopefully it has passed

  • Kids biscuit which should teach not to grind teeth.

  • It is a phase, that will pass eventually, they are really just getting used to their teeth.

  • How are you going with your child grinding her teeth?

  • I don’t think you can stop this without a mouth guard. Talk to your dentist about it
