okay biting toddler...
My toddler bites herself (and sometimes others) when she gets mad or upset. How can I teach her that biting isn't the solution? She seems to be constantly teething as well...
She doesn't have a favorite blanket or anything. I keep trying to introduce items but she refuses. Most of the time I think she is in pain, but Idk what to do because she seems immune to Tylenol. :(
Orajel she bites me when I try putting it on... Plus scared to use now cuz a friends kid got blisters Nd burns on her gums from it... She doesn't like the rings after a few minutes because it starts to unthaw Nd she doesn't like how it melts Nd gets her wet... Lol
Hmm.. no idea on this one! :( Would love to hear other Mamas solutions!
oh my goodness how I can relate! My oldest was a biter! i used to babysit children and she would bite this poor little boy! i felt so bad! i think she did it out of anger and jealousy more than teething ... eventually she did stop. but at that age it is hard to reason with her as to why she shouldn't bite. i never had an issue with my other 2 children !
yeah kado has been biting himself. i just tell him, dont bite your fingers and they wont hurt. my theory is he will learn
You have to tell her in a nice calm way that biting isn't nice and you can pull her back from you or anyone else before she goes to biting.
My oldest bit for the looongest time. We were going through a stressful period in our life and I found she would bite herself as a sort of outlet for all the feelings inside. She would bite me, her brother, her friends, her friends' parents, just about anyone too. I tried absolutely everything I could think of, but she just had to decide to stop. One thing that seemed to help the most was putting some tabasco sauce or some sort of hot sauce on a spoon and sticking it in her mouth when she bit someone.
When my son bites hes' only 10 months but still I gently squish his cheeks together and tell him No No we don't bite. Just keep telling her owey that hurts. Her teeth are coming in and can be painful. Those molers are a real pain I have been told...
