Re: Getting past the biting?

For me it worked to immediately end the nursing (physically, like when they were newborn, by putting a finger in the corner of his mouth) and put Michael down everytime he bit me. Also, as pp suggested, when I did that I said "no" in an "I-mean-it" voice and a frown. "No biting!", too. Once a minute or two had gone by, presuming he was still interested, I'd pick him up and we'd try again. Must have worked because he's 14.5 months now, has 8 teeth and doesn't bite. Good luck!
