My son is eleven months old and is now biting everything, including me. I say "No, don't bite, it hurts" and try to find a toy or something, but he always comes back to bite some more. This has gone on for a few weeks. What did you do to stop it?

Thank you!

I would gently flick my son in the mouth when he bit. Just enough to startle him. I also did timeout when he would bite. It took some time, but he eventually got the message. He still bites now and then, but it's usually when I put my finger in his mouth to check on a tooth.

My son was bad about bitting. A lady I worked with said to pinch him on the ear when he does it and I didnt it one time and he stopped has never bit anyone again
