    biting

    Advertisements
    dd is 9 1/2 months-ish and she loves to just bite me. i mean i can be holding her and she just bites HARD for no reason. not hungry, not frustrated, i can play with her and she bites me for no reason. how can i make her stop short of saying owwww really loudly and saying that hurts

    Be consistant when she does it, saying "ow, it hurts mommy when you bite" and I always put my index finger in their mouth across their gum line. I hope she stops for you. This is such a hard habit to break

    She's old enough to learn the word no. You can say it firmly and sternly. She might get all butt hurt the first couple of times and pout about it, maybe even cry a little...

    But she's old enough to learn "No." She has to learn it eventually.

    Johnny was a little bit older when he started this hitting thing. He thought it was funny to hit me while I was holding him. I would grab his hand and tell him no, not nice. It didn't work so one day I put him down and walked away. He hasn't done it since and he just turned 3 this past weekend.

    Good Luck hun.

    ... Cam only did that a couple times, a firm "NO" and putting her down worked for us.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    Tell her no firmly and put her down. She'll get the point.

    we use NO for things like her playing with the entertainment center but i haven't though about using it for biting. i wasn't sure if she was old enough to understand that NO biting that hurts is okay. she also does it when nursing sometimes and with that i say NO and put the boob away. i'll try some of the methods that you guys suggested, esp. NO

    If the bitting is when you are nursing, say no and put her down. Don't pick her up either right away. If you are consistant, she will learn.

    ds started to bite me towards the end so when he did I said "NO" firmly and put him down he quickly learned if he wanted to nurse he would not bite mommy. Worked great for us but you have to stay very firm and consistant with it in order for it to work
