My baby is almost one year old. This week he started biting his own wrists. Because he has wight teeth, he's leaving some awful teeth marks. Anybody have any experience with this? Why is he doing this? And what should I do about it?

Mine does it too and so do some of the daycare kids. I hate pacifiers but let my daughter have one because it at least keeps her from biting herself. No one method works but I keep trying frozen chew toys, orajel, cold, wet washcloths to chew on etc. Good luck.

Is he showing signs of pain? I saw a story about a girl who could not feel pain. It's a real problem, though maybe your baby doesn't have this.
