I'm glad the biting is a bit better -- my theory is that biting mama is where they get their first lessons in compassion, or at least, in becoming aware that their actions can hurt another. So it's actually an important life lesson that you are giving him. I mean, in Jeremy's case he bites his stuffed animals all day long. It's actually quite an achievement in self-restraint to recognize that mama is different and has REAL feelings, just like he does. That's like when you're teaching them to share, instead of just telling them to give back the toy they just grabbed, you tell them that their friend is sad, just as they would be if someone took their toy. That's a bit of a jump, but anyway that's what I've been reflecting on recently, with an 18-month old who doesn't bite anymore but chatters up a storm with my nipple dangerously dangling in his full mouth of teeth. Hugs and good luck!
