    Default The biting! How do you train your babies not to nibble on EVERYTHING?

    Any advise on how to break this habit? She wants to chew on fingers, toes, pants, shoes, furniture, almost everything but her chew toys! Any tips would be greatly appreciated! I can't stay mad long though.... this face!!

    Thanks Pati! That's what I've been doing so far. I'll just have to be patient... my kids are tucking their feet in when she comes running with the spring in her step, they know she is out to play. It's so funny!

    Persistence and consistency is key. You will have to redirect to a proper toy to chew on a million times for them to get the hint and it will take a long time but she will eventually get the picture.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Lol! I remember when my girls would sit on their feet, so Meatball wouldn't eat their toes! Actually the only time they got to hold him was while he was sleeping lol! It does pass, he doesn't do that anymore, and he's almost 2 I think. Forgive me I have mommy brains(which means I'm still trying to find the brain I had before kids). Anyhow the nipping does come to an end on toes/fingers. Shoes, toys, napkins etc that's a whole other story! Still fighting that!

    Luckily June never chewed on any furniture. She did ruin like 4 pairs of shoes though haha. BUT it does get better... there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
