We have a problem … Weston has learned to bite. It started with Logan. But he did it when he got overly excited … like he would run up and tackle you in a big hug and get carried away and bite into your arm. Weston is a whole other story! He bites when he gets mad! It’s his way of fighting back with Logan.
I usually hear the blood curdling scream and find Logan in tears with a big, red, wet bite mark on his arm. I’ve only seen it happen right in front of me a few times. Picture this: Logan is riding on a bike that Weston wants. Weston tries to push Logan off which he can NEVER do considering he weighs a full 10 lbs less than him. Then his eyes flare rage and he sinks his teeth into whatever flesh is closest.
I feel horrible! I’ve been able to catch him before he bites only a few times. (I’m starting to learn the look in Weston’s eye in order to stop him before it happens.)
Anyone else out there have biters? How do I get him to stop?? Right now I put Weston in his crib for a minute or two every time he does it. But we are going on two full days of this with no signs of learning. Pretty sure Love & Logic would tell me to keep with it and he’ll learn … but gosh I’m afraid to take Logan out in public for fear that people will think I beat my children! His arms are COVERED in bruises!
ps. I had another thought … do they make muzzles for toddlers??? ::kidding!::
