Hello Please help! Do you have any tips to offer me? I'm a distraught mother of an 18 month old. He started biting at 11 months old. He started nursery 4 days a week when he was nearly a year old. The biting was happening once or twice a week and each time it happened I was mortified! The nursery were so overwhelmed that they asked the local authorities for help. Someone came in to observe my little boy and offered the nursery tips to help overcome it. Let me tell you everything that the nursery and I have tried: - making sure he is not hungry or thirsty - taught him some sign language so he can tell us what he want - ignore him once he has bitten and comfort the child who was bitten - tell him what he is doing is biting, it hurts and get him to look at the mark and say sorry - at home I put him in time out (which I think he understands but continues to do it) - nursery to recognise signs of tiredness or frustration and take him to another setting like the garden or the sensory room - individual plan in place to make sure he gets enough 1:1 time and plenty of attention He started teething at 3 months old and has been teething pretty much ever since. Today he bit a child so badly on their cheek he wouldn't let go and one of the practitioners had to get help to remove him. I am beyond devastated for the children he is hurting. My husband and I are at a complete loss. People tell me it's a phase and he won't do it forever but I need it to stop now.
