Jackson has been teething - nothing new, but now he has begun testing out his teeth on cloth, toys, and PEOPLE! He sneaks up like he just wants to snuggle with me or Ben, and just when we think he is so sweet and cuddly, we feel a "biting" pain in our leg, thigh, chest, or foot!
Normally, I would just tell him "no, no" and maybe pop his mouth a little, but I hate to do that because I know he is just trying out his teeth and isn't doing it to hurt me! I need this problem to stop ASAP though because I will be caring for other children in less than a week! I don't want them going home with little 3-teeth bite marks on thier arms! That is bad for business! ;)
I have been advised to bite him back hard, but it seems so cruel, what do you think I should do?
