We had tried other ways, but what really solidified it for my little one was for her to think about which number comes first when she counts (and that's obviously the smaller number). After practicing that way for awhile, it has just become second-nature to her. This was after I was sure she could see two groups of objects and know which was bigger, though. I wanted to make sure she understood the concept first, and then I gave her a "trick." We focused on 0-9 first that way, and then introduced place value so she could easily figure out bigger/smaller beyond 10.
