Bitingte can be quite a problem in young children and can be difficult to deal with. Be firm with your baby when she bites. Tell her to stop in a clear firm voice. When she is a bit older and if she bites someone she must immediately be taken to her room for a while with the door closed, but now all you can do is tell her to stop.
