  • sounds bad, but biting him back when he bites is the BEST way to show how much it hurts.

  • I agree with vbruno.. my DH bit my daughter when she bit us. not hard at all.. but enough to make her realize that its not a nice feeling. She very rarely bites anymore.

  • My dd bit me twice, once she drew blood and left a huge bruise on my tricep. I bit her back once, left a tiny redmark on her arm and she's never tried it since. That was over 6 mos ago.
