so my 7 month old is fasinated by hair and glasses (most babies are) the downfall to that is that my 3year old niece has glasses and when my baby grabs them im afraid he's gonna break them. when he does it i tell him no and make him let go but any time i tell him no he just laughs at me.. any advice on how to teach him better?

I never just said "no" I always said "no, don't grab" or "not in mouth", etc. It'll obviously take repeating this 100 + times, lol.

I would tell the three year old not to let him near her face. At seven notes old no means nothing lol

I would work more with the 3 year old, keeping her face out of reach.

I wouldn't teach no. A 7 month old has no idea what that means. Redirection as Lo gets bigger with saying stuff like"lets do this instead", ouch that's not nice" etc. Saying no over and over just teaches them what yo say when THEY don't want to do something haha

Um hes 7 months old. He has zero idea of wtf you are saying. Tell the older kid to keep her face away.
