My 1 year old son has been super fussy all day and I think from teething. But today at lunch time while in his high chair while I was fixing his meal he bit his arm and left deep teeth marks on his arm. Is this normal?

  • My dd started to do this about a month or so ago, her molars are coming in all at once. She leaves bruises from it. If I see that she's about to bite herself, I go over and pull her hand or arm away, she ends up biting me instead though lol I swear by hylands teething tablets though, she hasn't bit since I got them from here. And they are all natural ans safe. Good luck.

  • I think it's normal.. if his teeth hurt then he needs something to chew on if he can't find anything else he'll use his arm.. maybe get some new teething rings or something strong for him to bite...
