Any advise to help my 8 month old to stop biting, she bites really hard specially when she gets excited ???

That is a tough one. My kids would start biting while they breastfed and I would give them a little flick on the cheek (just enough to get there attention) and they would stop. You can try to redirect her, to get her in the habit of something less painful and damaging, and show her other ways to express herself. You could also teach her what is okay to bite on and what is not (like people). It may take a little while, but you just have to try different things and see what works.
