I am looking to see if anyone has any advice for me about my 16 month old daughter who has started biting people.
Give her carrots and other things she can chew on.
When she bites, say NO! loudly, and physically remove her from the situation she was in. Every time.
When she is playing with somebody and hasn't yet bitten, say "Hey, you are playing nicely with _____. Good job!"
Biting is normal behavior for toddlers, so don't be too concerned. But try these tips to help prevent your child from biting. Good luck!

How many of you have seen the ad with the baby sleeping next to a meat cleaver, suggesting that co-sleeping is just as dangerous?
