I used to get this too. my boy called Nathan too! I used to pull him away and say ow. then pretend cry. if he carried on I would put him down. eventually I would just put him down and ignore him and he grew out of it. people didn't believe me how much it hurt but I would have red and blue teeth marks all over my collar bone, and once on my thigh, that really hurt! I have to add I have never agreed with biting them back, yes it shows them it hurts but to me it also says its ok to bite as mummy does. hope it helps

you can start with pulling him away, say "NO bite" and put him down right away. he will connect the fact that when he bites he doesnt get to be with you for a few minutes.
