Why is my baby uninterested in her toys?

Why is my baby uninterested in her toys?

Depends: Very often children end up more interested in simple household items or silly things like empty water bottles than they are the expensive toys we buy them.

Why do babies always like the tags on their clothing and toys?

Why do babies always like the tags on their clothing and toys?

Slippery: Who knows, really. But i thought after my first child I should have designed a toy to take advantage of that.

My year old daughter (who has just gotten teeth) is starting to bite when she doesn't get her way or becomes frustrated; me, other babies, toys, etc.?

My year old daughter (who has just gotten teeth)  is starting to bite when she doesn't get her way or becomes frustrated; me, other babies, toys, etc.?

Feedback: Keep telling her that biting isn't nice and offer her words to express her needs instead of biting. If you (and her other caregivers) are consistent, biting should quickly give way to more acceptable behavior. Also, if you ever "play bite" with her, stop now, as it makes her feel that biting is ok in some circumstances, when it really is not. Good luck! ...Read more
