If he is doing it playfully then he shouldn't be leaving marks. If he is not doing it playfully than he has a problem.

Parenting 101: do not bite your infant.

Seriously? He is biting a 2 month old child hard enough to leave a mark on her? Even if she is not crying, wtf?

There is no reason for a grown man to bite a new born, pretending to nibble your baby's toes while changing them is one thing, actually biting an infants face is something altogether different, and dare I say a little weird.

I would tell him that from now on he may only show appropriate displays of genuine affection through the normal more socially acceptable methods of kisses, snuggling and tickling. Biting is not to be used anymore to show affection to his child. And neither is pinching or flicking etc... (which all fall into the same category as biting to me.)

And if the skin was not broken, there is no risk of illness. However if he ever does break the skin, her health could be in grave danger very quickly. There are some real NASTY germs in a person mouth, you would rather she be bit by a dog than a person.

Yeah, I'm assuming you're not talking about the playful "nom-nom-nom" nibbling (with lips over the teeth) that parents sometimes do to their babies. If it's leaving red marks, and he's using his actual teeth, then he's hurting her and being an idiot. She's a baby, not an apple!

WHY is he biting the baby though? There is no point to that. He either needs to stop or I would take the baby and leave until he can stop. Doesn't matter if the baby is crying or not... biting a baby is never ok.

If it doesn't break the skin... physically the baby will be fine. No telling about the psychological impact on being bitten by daddy though.

I agree with Liz. This has to be close to the strangest threat ever.

Is this a serious question? Are you really allowing your husband to bite your infant?

Immature is right. What is he, two? WTF? And you MARRIED this person? Sorry, but I wouldn't be letting him anywhere near my kid. I can't believe you even have to ask, let alone only be concerned about the potential illness....what about the marks on the baby's face? Doesn't it bother you that this is hurting the baby?

I'm with the others, WHY is your husband BITING your baby? Teeth have a TON of germs. Of course it matters.

He shouldn't be biting playfully either, IMHO. It's hard to teach babies and toddlers not to bite other people or children if their parents are making a game out of doing it!

Rabies, probably. Or maybe your husband is anemic. Give the guy a steak.
