  • I bit mine back... she hasn't laid her teeth on anyone since. Of course, don't bite hard! I didn't even leave teeth maks... just a little red spot. She will cry and then explain how biting hurts her and everyone she bites.

  • I put my son in a time out in his crib every time he bit me. It took a few days (he was also younger) but it worked. He no longer bites.
