  • I have a 7 month old with 6 teeth and he loves to aunt told me to flick his mouth lightly and tell him NO...or just give him one of those water filled teething rings...both have been really helpful for us!

  • When I was little I used to bite, my Mom said she bit me back and I never did it again.

  • We do the biting back thing. But at such a young age I would struggle with the because I think they are really to little to know what they are doing. I would just redirect them to chewing on something else.
