DD2 is 13 months old and has just started biting and pinching in frustration. Today she had a go at DD1's face and has left a nice bruise there. After I pulled her off her sister, I told her no and she tried to bite me. She just laughed at me!! Why does she have to be so darn cute!
Any ideas on how to deal with this? DD1 has never bitten anyone in her life so I've not had to deal with it.

My DS who is also 13 months starting biting his sister about 6 weeks ago.
The "no biting" he didn't seem to get either.
Probably not ideal but I told DD ( who is almost 4yrsold) if he looks like he's gong to bite, move away and come and tell me.
She's a lot faster than he is but it seems to have worked..he attempts to bite and she moves/runs away from him to me......he now seems to have lost interest in biting her and tries to hug her or wrestle her instead.
Now i just have to figure out how to get him to stop scratching and hitting me while breastfeeding
