Thank u all 4 the suggestions! He already has 8 teeth but they do seem to bother him, he does chew on everything else and not only biting, but when he does bit he bits very hard and leaves marks! He bit my 6 month old nefew and left a bruise. But we have been putting him in timeout and telling him no everytime he even tries and it seems to be helping! Thank you again!

Is he biting aggressively or do his teeth hurt? My 1 year old has started biting recently but it seems to be because his teeth are coming through - he bites sofas and other things around the house too. When I give him a cloth to bite on he stops biting other people and things. And if he does bite I just use my sternest voice to tell him no and then do my sad face and he seems to get the message!

My girlfriend had the same problem with her child and found out it was because of a slight learning disability. The reason why he was biting was because he couldn't express what he wanted. After finding this out she got him the help he needed and he immediately stopped biting. I would just start off by saying no biting to your child every single time your child does it or attempts to do it. If it doesn't work I would have the pediatrician evaluate your child just in case there is a slight learning disability or maybe a problem with their ears. I hope everything works out for you. Take care :)
