My 15 month old grandson is a "biter". We have not had a "biter" in the family in my memory. I do know that many children are biting others, but the family wants some help in knowing how to discourage him developing this as an automatic response to frustration and attention seeking.
He does it more when he is teething.
Also, he and another little guy at daycare bite each other. For Andrew it seems to be a way of seeking attention.
Any suggestions to discourage his biting?
