My daughter is 19 month old and has started to bit when she gets mad and some times when she gets excited. I don't know why she started doing it. I am not sure how to get her to stop and she can bit hard. She has just started recentley and i would like to stop it before it becomes to much. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated.!!

My doctor gave me some good advise that worked for me. He said that if my son was going in for a bit and made contact to actually push his mouth into the bit so that a) it's putting the pressure of the bit back onto him and not on your skin and b) the sensation of that should shy him away from wanting to do it again. It worked for me I hope that it works for you!

Try helping your toddlers work on language alot of times they get frustrated and use bitting. I used to work with a little guy that couldnt speak. When he got angry or upset at another child he would bite them because he had a hard time communicating. We worked on words and mom also had been bitting back at home and that didnt work. Teaching a child not to bite by bitting them is not useful
