My charming little 8-month-old, Lucas, has become a biter since getting his two bottom teeth. Many a lady wants to pinch his chubby, dimpled cheeks, and he likes to give out slobbery smooches. But, lately, the wet kisses lead to a bite. He bit Aunt Sarah’s arm a couple weeks ago, leaving a mark. I can’t count the number of times he’s bit me.
I’ve tried to follow up with a sharp “NO”, and I think that’s helping. Also, I usually give him a teether or something else to chew on. I try to warn people ahead of time, and I can usually tell when he’s going to bite. So, hopefully we’re nearing the end of a phase!
Have you had a biter? What did you do?
