Help. I know I already asked a question today, and it sounds like my beautiful 19 mos. old baby is totally out of control, but she is a lover and a sweet baby, just with some bad habbits. Today she started biting. She bit my 13 mos old neice 3 times and me twice. I know she is cutting her eye teeth, so her poor little mouth hurts, but I can't just let her bite people. Is this something that she will develop a habit of, should I be concerned, or is it just because she is teething? I don't want her to think it is okay, but she is so small I don't know how to punish her. I told her not to bite, I told her to kiss the baby and tell her she was sorry, and the last time she bit the baby's toe, so I took my daughters own toe and put it in her own mouth and told her to bite so she would know it hurt. I don't know what else to do! Help! Is there anything else to do or do I just pray this is a short phase and she stops?
