Stop biting!! — The Bump
Babies: 9 - 12 Months

Stop biting!!

I posted a few weeks ago about DD's biting. She bites when she is angry, sad, tired, hungry, not getting attention etc. It's getting to be a real problem. I'll be trying to put DS to bed and she'll come right up behind me and chomp down. It almost draws blood. She bites when she's nursing too. I've tried ignoring it, yelling, telling her no, distracting her, everything. Nothing works. Many times when I tell her no, she'll cry, but then go right back and do it again. She bites DS and me the most, but also has started on other children and guests. She is the sweetest baby, but can't stop biting! What do I do?

Re: Stop biting!!

  • Maybe consult your pedi since it seems to be escalating. There could be an underlying reason for it or some way to divert/channel the behavior into something else.
