I have a one year son who is teething and biting. The catch is - the only person he seems to bite is me. Not the sitter, his cousins or his father. Just mom. It seems to happen when we are playing. It's hasn't appeared when he is frustrated at me or upset- normally it's just us rolling around and suddenly he bites me. I don't know why he is doing it but I really, really want it to stop. Believe it or not those little chompers hurt. Saying Not nice or ouch hasn't really worked but I am really up for any advice you all can give. Thanks!Answer Question

Whatever you do, do NOT bite him back! That is considered child abuse in most states!! And it doesn't work anyway! All he will know is that you bit him and it hurt, he doesn't know that when he bites you that you feel pain. He isn't old enough to process that information yet. Mine was a terrible biter!! The only way to get her to stop was just sliding my hand between her mouth and whatever part of the body she was trying to latch onto at the time. Then I'd say "NO BITING! THAT HURTS"...it did take her a little while to get used to the idea, but she did stop. A few times she would start and then look at me and say "No bite?" Took a good couple weeks to get her to stop doing it all together. It comes from frustration. Learn to recognize when yours is getting stressed out and stop it, redirect attention, MOVE before it gets to that point. GOOD LUCK!
