    Default The fighting has already begun

    They fight over every toy, my attention and Kaylees soother (Brad takes it out of her mouth to chew on it, and then she screams). And I'm that horrible mother that video tapes and laughs as they fight! Its going to be a long 18 years!

    Well, I already look like a crazy for not understanding how to hit the reply button, so I'll just reply again. I cannot even believe this. Mine have only just started looking at one another. I can't believe they're fighting! That's hilarious/crazy/awesome/weird/sucks for you! Still can't believe these leeches will turn into people.

    Oh yeah, let the fun begin. DH and I would laugh to, I think he had a facebook post about it once, how he wanted to just chant, "baby fight" over and over. lol. I don't think he got many comments, only parents of twins can understand. lol

    Just wait until they can crawl!!! Keira crawled before Sarafina, and she would crawl right over the top of her. She smooshed her face into the carpet and S would just lay and cry. OMG!!! She gets K back for it now though. She pulls her hair and pushes her over all the time. K is not aggressive like that, so she just looks shocked whenever S treats her that way.

    Abram is my more aggressive one, and Wyatt usually looks shocked every time he gets bit. It is so frustrating. Any suggestions for biters? We have tried biting back (as a last resort, I'm tired of Wy having bite mark bruises all over), time out, hugs and sorries, etc. Nothing seems to help much.

    Honestly, I think biting is somewhat more developmental. I think learning how to express yourself with language helps curb it. I really think that it is a way to communicate anger or displeasure for some kids. I think consistency helps too, which I am sure you are already consistent.

    You are probably right Mel. The frustrating thing is that Abram is so good at expressing himself. He will say, "nooooo Wyatt" right before he chomps or pushes him. But my sister and I were talking about it this weekend, she had a biter, he's 15 now. But some kids just have to scream to let out anger, or bite etc. We do time outs every single bite, and hugs and sorries after. He knows the routine now. And it has gotten better than it was a few months ago, but so hard when my other baby has constant bruises in the shape of little teeth.
