    My son is 17 months old. He bites for everything I’ve been doing redirecting nothing. If he’s happy he bites. Upset bites. Givig kisses bites! I’m at my wits end! I have a family I babysit and he targets one of the little boys that’s two! Any advice would be great

    Not good if he targets and hurts another child, but I wouldn’t really be that concerned. He’ll outgrow it, it’s probably just part of feeling what his body does (or those new teeth he just got). Gentle redirection, like you’re doing, saying it firmly where the other child is concerned, but then just having patience.

    I remember my son doing this when he was a baby. Luckily he outgrew it really soon! I just kept being stern with him & telling him ‘NO!’
