15 month old biting other kids
My 15 month old has been biting for a while now, but I was his usual target. I would remind him not to do this and explain he was hurting me. I've been blaming it on teething as it seems at it's worst when he's in real pain. He has started trying to bite the other grown ups in his life and we have kept the same approach. Now he's begun biting his brother and peers. They aren't as patient or tolerant. I feel bad for them as he can bite quite forcefully. My four year old has bite marks on his back. We continue to remind him that biting hurts and it's not ok, and pointing out how sad the other person is.
He's finally cut all his teeth, just this week. I'm guessing he's still dealing with some pain as the canines keep moving up and out. I really think this is the reason for the biting. But I'm wondering what to do about it. It's been going on for months now and it's really only getting worse rather than better at this point as he's biting everyone. We all cringe when he lunges to get close to us, not sure if we're going to get one of his oh so special kisses or a bite.
I've tried homeopathic remedies, thought I had the right one but it doesn't seem to help, so I'm guessing it's not it.
Any suggestions? TIA
