How to Stop Toddler Biting

Biting is on my mind this week both from our son biting at home and from him receiving some bites at school. In fact, when I picked him up from daycare on Tuesday, he had two separate accident reports from being bitten twice by two other toddlers. 

When my daughter was a toddler, she had a serious biting habit, which nearly got her kicked out of daycare. Of course, with two working parents, we couldn’t have that so we buckled down and worked hard on stopping her biting behavior. Luckily, we were able to get it under control thanks to help from some other mom friends of mine and their tips.

The two siblings playing nicely, which is rare.

With our son, it has been different. He only bites us, my daughter, and sometimes his teacher but generally doesn’t bite other kids. While I am thankful that he isn’t biting other kids, this scenario presents a different challenge than our daughters did. In trying to remember what I did several years ago to help stop be biting, I did some research and found a great post by The Military Wife and Mom blog. She has posted a step-by-step guide to help eliminate toddler biting. I plan to put her tips into motion next week. Wish me luck! If you have any toddler biting tips, drop those in the comments section to help me out!
