This is driving me nuts!! I can't think of a way to stop it. DS is almost two....he has gotten this habit of running up to me and biting me! If I strap him into the Ergo, he nips my shoulder or my back. If I change my clothes, he runs up and nips my bare legs. If I hold him with his head on my shoulder he starts biting my shoulder. It is SO PAINFUL! I don't know how the heck to fend him off. I think he's just being playful or sometimes even just joyful, but he has no concept of hurting me, and doesn't seem to care if I get upset. Any ideas?? Is this a phase anyone else has had?

DS did this for awhile and after explaining to him over and over again that it hurt mommy and that instead we could hug, kiss, etc he eventually stopped. Good luck. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I would probably act very upset and sad, and give him something that IS for biting. Over and over and over. Good luck!

In hindsight, most of the time my DD was biting, it was teeth coming in. I second the suggestion to give him something to bite instead of you, and keep telling him that it HURTS. He's at the age where he should understand that.<br><br>
I know it's a hard stage --!!
