Default Biting!

My 14 Month old keeps biting. hes had teeth for along time and hasnt been doing that. We moved in with someone that has a little boy a few months younger then my son could he be teaching my son to bite ( he bite all the time) or is this just something every baby does?

No, this is something you should get him to stop doing.

If the other baby is teaching him to bite, you have to keep your baby away from him. I would watch their interactions very closely and see what is going on.

If your son bites, you have to immediately handle the situation Tell him "No!", remove him from the room, and put him in a timeout. Talk to him the whole time in a stern voice, but without yelling too much. You have to be persistent with this. It will not work the first try and he will probably bite again. With time, patience and repetition he will get the picture, but the major influencing factor will be to remove him from the situation and the tone of your voice.

Many babies do go through a biting phase, but it is usually when they are first getting their teeth. I agree you will need to start re-directing and removing him from the influence. Same goes for the other baby; when my son (he is 1 now) started biting we told him "No bite!" and would put him down if we were holding him. If he was trying to bite his sister or the dog, we would pick him up and place him down somewhere else and hand him a toy that was safe for chewing on. He hasn't done it in awhile.

On the other hand, my friend's 14 month old has been doing it for awhile and still does it; she is worried that daycare will kick him out if he bites other kids too many times. (cuz they can do that, for real)
