Yes I know. My son either thinks it's funny or he gets upset cuz I'm telling him off. Some people say you should gently bite them back to teach them a lesson, but that 'method' is useless because a one year old wouldn't understand at all why you're doing it. Firm voice is the only way to go, unless someone else here comes up with something better :)

Hi Melissa
My 1 year old son does the same thing. The problem with this age is that even of we think they understan quite a bit already, most often that's not the case. Basically, you can't discipline a 1 year old. All you can do (and should do) is to tell him "no" with a firm tone of voice every time he bites.
