tell me this is normal and doesn't last, please!

he has top and bottom teeth and has been moving his lower jaw so they click past each other <shudder> it makes me feel physically sick and I am so worried he will damage them... why is he doing this?

My DD did this - made me wince every time. It didn't last long though. I forced myself not to react, and it soon passed.

My DD did this - she is now one and still does it sometimes but much less than she used to. I used to worry she would damage her teeth too but resigned myself to the fact that was really aboslutely nothing I could do to stop her doing it and therefore no use worrying!!

Mine ds used to grind his which made a terrible sound (I think he probabaly had a few more teeth by then). I suppose it's the novelty factor. It does pass!
