  • there's not much you really can is a phase and he will grow out of it....i hated hearing dd was a biter too..but it will pass..we always put our finger to dd's lips and told her "no no..we don't bite", and eventually she caught the jist of it...but it will take time. dd still bites on occasion and she's 2. as he gets older you can do time out for it, so that he understands that what he did was wrong. good luck. it will get easier.

  • omg thats hilarious. thats me, and my son and my mother. we say "no bite" and everything.
    i just asked this question like a month ago, & a bunch of people said "bite him back", so one time i bit him back and then said "if you bite mommy, mommy bite (his name)" and then one time i gave him a time out in his little chair in the corner & explained it to him.
    hes 14 months old now and he hasnt bite my since those last two incidents a few weeks ago.
