How do I do that? She didnt start doing it till recently and I know she picked it up playing with another lil girl. N I cant keep her away from this lil girl because its her daddys gfs kid. When shes home I can get her to stop doing it whithin 24 hours of being back but every weekend its the same thing. UGG Somebody help me!!!

I think you need to make a time where you all sit down and discuss and action plan of instance if they bite its 1.5 minutes on a naughty spot for the biter ( thats for a 2 year old not sure how old the other girl is but time goes by age). even if the other little girl doesn't get it yours will and then its there problem its need to be consistent and the same at both homes. Every single time! and then you can say well knows not to do it at home your her daddy deal with it .

Ya already tried that!! They know the other lil girl bites and are unsuccessfull in breaking her from it, Then tell me I need to break my daughter that shes hurting the other girl.

Have you tried talking with her daddy and his gf? I understand your pain my daughter got the biting phase from my niece (only a month apart in age). Not sure if she'll understand but maybe you can tell her that it's not nice to bite, biting hurts, and teeth are for chewing food not biting. When my daughter bites I bite her back (not hard) but just enough pressure to show her it hurts. Usually she understands, she'll cry about it for a few minutes then tell me sorry for biting. I would definiately talk to daddy and his gf about the issue since she comes home from there biting. Good Luck!
