My son is 13 months and has started biting. It's not out of frustration or anger at all.. he just doesn't know any better and is usually smiling when it does it. Any suggestions? (PS It's not a teething thing..)Answer Question

Well when he bites you the only thing you can really do is put him down, and tell him in a stern voice, "NO! That hurts Mommy, NO BITE!" My 15 month old started doing this, and he doesn't do it as often now. He knows if he does it he doesn't get mommy. A friend of mine tried biting her son back, he's three years old now, all he does is bite now. He thinks it's okay. Don't worry mama, it's just a phase!
