Is this normal? He's got his bottom two and top two now. Is he doing this because he's got new teeth and its something different? He was clicking his jaw a lot before but has now stopped that.

I've no idea milkyjo, but I'd be interested to see other's responses as my 10mo DS does exactly the same thing! It sets my own teeth right on edge!

Done a bit more searching on the internet and it turns out they are just experimenting with their new acquisitions at that age! Its horrible though isn't it?! Hopefully they'll grow out of it soon!

Perfectly normal! My dentist says he thinks milk teeth are provided just so the child can get this sort of thing out of their system. grin

we get lots of sucking at them too and sort of flicking them with his fingernails- horrible noises both. I shall look forward to tooth grinding when the top ones have come through fully hmm

Ooh, it's horrid isn't it? But then if you had some funny new lumpy things in your mouth that you could make a funny noise with, you just would, wouldn't you grin

DS has got his top and bottom ones through and he's grinding them as well. It sounds horrible, but I remember his sister doing it as well for a bit and she stopped after a while. DS also pulls some amazingly weird faces - again like his sister did at 8 months or so - think they just love playing with their new teeth!
