My son does all of these things and he's only five months old. I realize part of it could be from him still learning and being curious about what he touches but it's quite often and it hurts! Recently, he started laughing afterwards and I don't know how to get him to stop when he already thinks it's a game. I figured it was because he would see me react from it hurting so now I just say "bad" and put his hand down then he stops for a while. I don't want him to still be doing this when he gets older but I had someone tell me it's too early to discipline. I don't feel like I'm really disciplining and if I don't do something won't he just keep doing it? Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know. Has anyone experienced this with their children and what did you do to make them stop, if anything?
