|My baby has got into the habit of biting, and it really annoys
me because it is so sore. Those new teeth are SO sharp! My
mom says that biting back is the only way to deal with this.
It doesn’t really feel like a solution to me. What can
Biting is just another game to your baby, and the annoyed
reaction is just part of the fun. He has been experimenting
with biting everything he can get his hands on, and so far
the most fun by far is the human reaction. He is just learning
cause and effect and experimenting with his world. This
is not naughtiness, just exploration. Biting back is just
not a solution, and will cause so much misery. There really
isn’t much you can do other than take the game out
of it. So when baby bites, just say in a calm voice NO and
then carry on with a distracting activity. In this way you
make it into a boring activity, not worth his time and energy.
