Maisie has been trying to take a bite out of crime anywhere she can. Yes, it all started while she was nursing. Now it is just out of control. I was noticing that she kept trying to bite my leg while I was on my computer. Then again while I was putting her to sleep. I thought they were innocent little nibbles, but now I am beginning to think she is trying to communicate something to me. Is she mad? Does she need more attention? Is she bored? Maybe all of the above. I don’t know.
I tried to say a firm, “NO”, but she just looked at me like, “Is that all you got?” Then I tried pushing in on the side of her cheek to release the little grip her four teeth had on my flesh, but that was also a joke. She just stops and goes back to it. I tried out the flick of my fingers next to her mouth where she is biting me, but nothing. She just stops…looks up at me as if to say, “Why would you even do that Mom?”…then proceeds to feast on my arm.
Any ideas for biting babies???
