Suggestions to prevent biting...

My 14 month old boy enjoys knawing on my thighs as if I was a piece of chicken! I have tried to do the right thing by talking to my Pedi about it, but the only suggestion they have given is to walk away from him and ignore him. What do you do when they can follow you? He is like a baracuda waiting for his prey with his perfectly shaped 8 front teeth and the pain is becoming a little unbearable. I have tried talking to friends and family about this and they suggest I bite him back to make him stop. I don't think I could do that to my child. Any suggestions that don't require harm to my little guy??
