Re: how do you teach a baby no?

With my first, I just did what mil said to do...which was to tell him no in a firm voice and if action was repeated, no with a smack on the hand. With my second, I'm only telling him no and moving him away from whatever. I can say very confidently - that with my children, I'm getting the same result. Just telling him no and moving him...is just as effective as saying no and smacking hand....so if you ask me, I'd prefer not to smack hands! I do understand that it's right for some people, but I'm so ashamed about how I dealt with my first..I just did whatever mil said to do. Ack. Anyway.

Just have to keep telling them no and move/distract like pp said...it'll take a few million times of saying/doing it...but, that's what it takes.
