It is mostly with other infants. He isn't mad he just walks up to them and will grab their face or pinch and has bitten. I have showed him to be gentle and explain to him that he can say hi by touching the hand gently. I console the one that has been hurt and redirect my son. He keep doing it. Advise?

Keep nails short and remind him to be nice to the baby, if he bites say firmly no bite. I have heard to bite back and I have done it to my daughter and she didn't bite anymore. But I have also heard that this encourages them to bite.
