The past few days my 8 month old son has been shifting his jaw back and forth in such a way that it makes a grinding sound. He does this periodically, maybe a couple time a day for about a minute or so each time. It's such a harsh sound- especially coming from such a little person! Anyone else experience this? Ideas as to why he's started doing this?

Yes, DS did this beginning when he got bottom teeth at 7mo!!!!!! He does it less now than he used to (at 11mo), but sometimes I still catch him. It annoys me greatly, and I am afraid for the condition of his teeth. When it happens, I touch his chin and say "Don't grit your teeth, please." I have no idea if he comprehends this, but it makes me feel better that I try to do something about it.
