Non stop chewer

Hi mamas! My 2 1/2 year old has a serious chewing problem. This girl will put anything and everything in her mouth. We've gotten her silicone teething necklaces and she just chews on everything but that. I would greatly appreciate any feed back/suggestions on how to curb this behavior. Thank you!

Well she's cute. I also have a two 1/2 year girl. She should have her teeth. New ones are probably coming in and hurt. You can numbing ( excuse the spelling) with ice. Others parents are alittle more serious by using chilly. Also you can try numbing medicine but not recommended by dentists.

I've definitely checked (when she lets me) to see if she's maybe getting in some molars but I haven't seen anything. She never really took to a pacifier either. She just loves to chew.

Distraction is the key. Coloring or some kind activity. Playing with a ball or blocks. Go for a walk. I go sometimes two short blocks. I make her walk for nap time.
