DD has been slapping her own face recently, just on one side. Not hard, and she doesn't seem distressed while doing it, but it's....weird. We think she MAY be starting to get her two-year molars. Is this something they do with molars?

That's what my DD is doing, now that she's got her first molar coming in. Hitting the sides of her face, digging in her ears.....and well before I could see the molars coming in, she was digging into the back of her mouth with her finger. I thought she was becomming a finger sucker-- but a stranger pointed out to me that she was "digging," and that more teeth would be coming in soon. Time to get the teething tablets!<br><br>

Yes! She's digging in the back of her mouth, too--it does look like finger sucking, but seems more intentional than that. Well...*sigh*...another wild ride...(DD is an awful teether.)
