Re: 9 month old biter!

I don't think biting back teaches anything except that people DO bite!!! Babies don't have the cognitive development to think, "Wow, if mommy bites me and that hurts, it probably hurts when I bite other people!"

My suggestion is to firmly tell the baby "No" and set him down away from whoever he bit for a minute. He'll get the picture that if he wants to interact with others, he better not bite or he'll be taken away every time!
