My daughter is 16 months old and has been biting since she was about 8 months old when she started teething. I've tried everything that I could think of or was told to try +to get her to stop. I've tried biting her back (she normally laughs when I do this), slapping her hands, putting her in her pack and play, putting her in her bed, telling her that biting hurts mommy, giving her a teething ring when she bites...I've noticed that she does it more when she's been playing and being more energetic than normally and she only bites women. She's never bitten a man, so I'm not sure if there's a reason why she only bites women and I have no idea how to get her to stop. Any suggestions would be wonderful and greatly appreciated.Answer Question

It's a phase they go through. They get excited & crazy some times. But, I would say owwww.... & pretend to cry, make a sad face, stop playing & leave the room when my son did that. You have to react immediately and leave the room every time she does it so she learns through positive reinforcement that when she does that, mommy stops playing & leaves the room & her alone.
