what do I do about my 16 month old bitting?

My 16 month old has been bitting since she was about 10 or 11 months old. She usually bites her 4 year old sister. But she has bit me before and her daddy also she has bit my mom before. She trys bitting her 10 month old cousin. I tried smaking her bottom and smaking her mouth when she does this, but it doesn't work. My grandma and a friend told me to bit her back, but I would think that would make her think it was ok to do it if I was trying to get her to stop. What can I do to get her to stop bitting?

  • Well, this is going to sound mean, but she doesn't realize how much this hurts. I say bite her back and good and she will stop.
