my 2.5yo son started biting his nails recently. for a while, in stressful situations, he sucked his fingers, but then it changed to biting nails. he bites them when he may be stressed/nervous and, it seems, when he's still (while i'm reading to him).
i just can't help myself and i try to get him to stop. i know in the larger picture it's not terrible. our pediatrician said it's often genetic -- my dad and i both pick at our cuticles.
it's good for me to read about how some of your kids stopped biting their nails. it's inspired me to start ignoring it.
