    OP My 13 month old decided she thought she would start biting 2 months ago. She bit me once and it shocked me so she thought it was great fun. We would tell her no and put her down right away when she bit. After a few times of being put down and walking away she stopped. Not sure if it was the way we handled it or if she just decided she didnt want to anymore but worth a shot.

    DD is a biter. I was horrified the first time she bit herself... god it was awful!

    I have found that she tends to bite herself when she is angry or frustrated. Some one on here suggested to me that it was because she was frustrated and not able to get her point across. This made sense to me.

    Does she have anything that she really likes? My DD has a shoe fetish dont know where she gets it from because i definitely do not! When she bit someone else, I tried everything, talking, reasoning, begging, bribing, smacking her when she did it, nothing even seemed to register. Now i take away her favorite pair of shoes until the next day. She HATES it and it tends to stop her for a few days.

    When she started biting herself she was getting the reaction she wanted from me. Horror, shock, id pick her up to make sure she was ok and so she didnt do it again. It got really really bad to the point where i was concerned people would think i was hurting her because of the awful marks on her arms.

    One day she did it and i just looked straight past her and didnt react at all. It took all of my effort and will power and it was so hard but it started to work. She began to realize that she was not getting the desired result from me anymore and i have to say she is alot better now.

    Unfortunately, i dont think there is a quck fix - i wish there was - i am still waiting for someone to tell me where the switch is hidden to switch off the naughty, i am sure it is somewhere

    It does get better. DD started all this when the was 18 months old, she is now 2.5 and it is almost over now. TOUCH WOOD!!!
