Anyone else dealing with this? Zaden is like a Vampire! He pretends to be so sweet and loving and acts like he is giving u a raspberry which he may do one but the next step he is biting! I yelp out and he cracks up, how do I gt him to understand it isn't good to bite or can I? I literally have bite marks all over me. OMG, I am being battered by my 8 month old..lol... JOKING

roran has no teeth so i havent had this issue ... BUT the other ladies said you yelp and make a boo boo face so he knows it hurts you and then refuse to hold him or play with him for a few mins or something everytimes he bites you .

they say hell pick it up real soon ... FTM here so ill have to see how it works when i get to that stage

At this age I tell her no, put her down, and walk away.

Yep, my DS does that too. He acts like he's going to cuddle or give you a kiss then he bites.

My standard like of defence is to tell him no biting and put him down for a bit when he bites.

I really hope this stage passes quickly.

I agree about telling him no biting and put him down, but also don't make a sound when he bites you (or a face). Right now he thinks your reaction is funny, so it's a game to him.

Yep, this is what we do. He doesn't bite often, thankfully.

This is exactly what I was going to say. Will started this biting routine about 2 weeks ago. When I am holding him, he likes to open his mouth wide and bite my shoulder or shirt. Actually, I think it's friggin adorable! But I don't want him to make it a habit so I say no-no and he stops. I don't make a face or make a big deal out of it, just tell him no-no.

Lilli does it on my face and neck. She grabs my hair with both hands and holds me hostage! It hurts!!! I tell her "no bite" 'cuz she does it on other peoples hands and that's just nasty, even if she doesn't understand.

Alexis bites, dangling feet off the couch, and when she gets really fussy and tired, she will nip me when nursing. I just yell out in pain, say no, and she knows now.

^ this. Usually when Josie nips I know she needs something. But sometimes she does it just cause and I firmly tell her no! Same thin with pinching me when she's nursing. It's usually cause she has to burp or she's done but can't handle unlatching herself!

Kaylee understands and mostly listens to no, so i would just tell her no.

No teeth for her yet though so we're okay so far lol

Amber turns her head and bites me when she's mad, especially if I take something out of her mouth. At first she seemed to be understanding "no" and deterred by the noises I made, but now they're a fun game for her, so I'm trying to change my tactics. Walking away from her would probably work, since she gets so distraught when I walk past her these days.

A lot of it is also exploring like Ro said but it is a teething think as well, with or without teeth. The biting and putting pressure on something helps. Its like they suggest giving them a cold wash cloth to bite on while they are teething. They just dont know what they should and shouldnt put in their mouths yet.
