Quoting Stephanie Onyembi:" I pressed 2 of his fingers down on his teeth JUST ENOUGH for him to feel it. But when he bites his brother, ... [snip!] ... he's going to get bitten. Because despite what some super moms may think, they can't be in my sight every second of every day."


If he's biting that hard I wouldn't be leaving him alone with his brother. My daughter never bit to the point of drawing blood. I would get an indent at the most. If he's drawing blood and causing real pain then you should be watching him like a hawk. Bring him with you when you leave the room. I know its difficult but its something you have to do.

Well just keep doing what your doing then, u keep knocking down every single suggestion any one makes anyway

I do know that when he bites, it's almost always because he wants a toy that his brother has. I'm saying that's the reason for his biting.

1) Supervise your damn children.
2) Leave them with people who will supervise them. If your sister has to many kids and cant properly watch them find someone else who can.
3) Tell the 2 year old that he is biting because he wants the toy (or whatever you think the reason is) Tell him that biting is wrong and you are teaching him to not do it. Then give him options of what to do, share the toy or move away from his brother before the biting starts. If your are properly supervising your children then you should be able to recognize the signs of when it is most likely to occur.
4) IDGAF what other things you have going on. If you have children that cant play safely alone together then you have to do something. Separate them or supervise them, your job as a mother comes first.
5) Give him a safe thing to bite. Stay consistent in your redirection/time out.

Yeah maybe I'll try that. I'll just pull a bunch of toys out of the bedroom and lock it up so they can't go in there. That really is the only way I can watch them constantly. Oh, that...and quit my job and glue my eye lids open, and never clean my house (except during nap and after bed when I need to be studying and doing homework).

Or let your 2 year old play in the room while your 15 month old plays where you are. My youngest is almost 15 months and he has tried to bite his older brother and sister, but I stop him cause I can always see them, even when I'm cleaning. Or if I'm doing dishes, I do it while he is napping or eating in his highchair so my children don't get hurt but I get stuff done.



Stop making excuses and stop hurting your baby cause you don't want to put in the work to get him to stop.

Your 2 little ones are not old enough to supervise themselves. They need an adult to help supervise them and guide them.

What about your husband? What is he doing during all of this? Maybe you should get a real babysitter or nanny

My kids love to help with the laundry. When the baby naps my oldest and I have cleaning contests to see who can put away the most toys, sweep their area the fastest. Get their pile of clothes in the washer the fastest.

Its not hard for me to accomplish my daily tasks either...however, you sound like a lazy, self-absorbed mother and your home probably needs more attention. I clean every waking second I'm at home and still manage to watch my children and get my other tasks taken care of. It sounds like you are one of those moms that lets your older child "watch" the younger one constantly...that has to stop. Take your computer to their room and do your homework while they play if thats what it takes.
