My dd (lilyan jayde) will be 8 months old in a week. She pulls hair and bites. She has 4 teeth so it hurts. My sil says slap her softly on her hand about the hair and on the mouth for biting but i think she is too little for that! But what do i do? I want her to learn that it is wrong and hurts us. What did you moms do?

just gently grasp both her hands in yours when she pulls hair and tell her "no no" or "no owie" or something along those lines. 

as for the biting I would give her a sharp" no"!. biting hurts.

Its my body and I'll do what I want to.

Why would you ever lay your hands on your child at all?  You will teach her nothing by hurting her.  Redirect her, put her down when she does it.

Just reprimand, "Ouch, that hurts" and redirect her.  She's just a baby.  She's not purposely hurting you or defying you!

 I have always tapped the hand and said sternly NO when mine have done the hair.  Never had a biter so not sure.

 Violence begets violence is all I have to say.

No 7 months is too young... Very firm "NO" and explanation should be sufficient for now.

DS is the same age and he sure isn't doing it intentionally.

I just keep my hair up when I'm holding him, and take my finger back if he bites me haha :)
