Toddler biting is linked to comfort and calm. But that doesn’t make it any less hard for parents to deal with. But, knowing how to stop a toddler from biting begins with knowing they really aren’t aggressive. Toddlers that bite are simply continuing habits learned a few months earlier when they were babies, and for the same reasons, not related to anger or frustration, but mouth discomfort. Luckily parents can help toddlers manage the biting habit and keep new teeth out of siblings and furniture.
