My 20-month-old bit my 5-year-old about 6 months ago, but he stuck his finger in her mouth. So, we
chucked that up to his fault for putting his finger there. But the other times have been recent (within in the last 6 weeks) and
never in our presence. How can we punish her hours later for something
she doesn't remember and/or understand? Am I being naive to think she
doesn't "get it?"Again, she's not even 2-years-old. She can barely talk.
I really am at a loss. Everyday we drop her off at daycare, we're staring at our phones, dreading it to ring, because we know it's because she's bit again. I've already had to pick her up from daycare once. The next time she bites they say she has to miss a full week of daycare. Everything I've found said is for breastfeeding babies, or older children, which she is neither. Please, any advice, would help!
