Re: how do you teach a baby no?

I make my voice firm and different than my regular voice. I don't yell at her, but I make my voice a bit deeper and say "Kiersten, no." I don't tell her no very often, it's only for things like trying to play with outlets because there are a few outlets in the living room that we use, so I can't cover them up. Babies catch on quickly, I find that just saying the baby's name in a firm voice gets them to stop what they are doing better than saying no.
