My 2 daughthers have got into the habbit of biting very very early and i have no idea how to stop it. i no the younger n smaller one of the 2 bites her sister when she takes something off her as my other daughter is more dominant, but she has started copying her and its getting to the stage where arms, legs, bodies are covered in bite marks and bruises and its bad looking! I have tried biting back but that usually only stops them from biting us not each other!! HELP!!

My son is only 15 months old and he bites as well and although I know they don't completely understand why they can't bite yet, I would try explaining to your girls really simply why they shouldn't bite. You could say something like "No biting, that hurts" but say it firmly.
