  • I would not bite back. If you happen to leave a bruise on your childs arm then you can be charged with child abuse.

  • I USED HOT SAUCE PUT A DAB ON HER TOUNGE AND WAIT A FEW SECONDS TELL HER NO BITE SHE ONLY DID IT 2 X AFTER THAT SHE  DIDN'T BITE ANY LONGER WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE SHE MIGHT I WOULD GRAB THE HOT SAUCE SHE WOULD STOP  THEN I WOULD GIVE HER SOME MILK THEN SHE WAS FINE ! IT'S OK TO DO IT'S A FOOD PRODUCT AND IT'S SAFE NO HARM TO HER ! IF YOU BABY HER TO MUCH SHE WILL NEVER LEARN !

  • you can try to take his arm and press his teeth against it so he knows that his teeth are sharp and it hurts. Try and get something that is ok for him to bite on (like a teething toy or a washcloth or blanket). also remember that this is just a phase.

  • My youngest was a biter too, except he did it HARD! He drew blood on me a few times. I would tell him no, obviously, and if I was holding him, I put him down. It slowed quite a bit by doing that, but he was still doing it every once in a while, until one day he bit his own finger. He cried and hasn't bit me since! I think it's just a phase though. Try giving other things to chew on keep reminding him he can't bite you!
