My son is nearly 10 months old and he had develpoed a nasty habbit of biting everythin and anything from soft toys to my toes arms ears etc. I continue to use distraction techniques and reinforce them with 'no biting' but they don't seem to work. e goes to nusery in a few weeks and I don't want him to bite any other children or adults as it really hurts. Any ideas?

My son is exactly the same it really does hurt, they have bloody sharp teeth. I'm just telling him off and hoping that eventually the message will kick in. The nursery staff will help as well. have no fear it's only a phase.

I think you're doing all you can. Paying more attention to the behavior will only reinforce it. You should move him away from you and say "No biting" and then give him a distraction. Just be consistent and continue to do what you are doing...sorry I don't have more than that!





Thanks wanted to make sure that was the only thing to do






 






From what I've read and discussed with the Ped, it is!  Good luck!
