My DS2 bites all the time. He will be 1 next week and this has been going on for months now. I keep thinking it's a phase and he will grow out of it. I'm covered in marks and bruises where he pierces my skin and leaves me bleeding. He seems to do it more when he's upset (which is a lot as he doesn't sleep and is generally cranky and tired) and crawls all over me and bites, or grabs my fingers and tries to bite them before I get a chance to pull them away.
I tell him no and put him down on the floor or move him away from me, but he will just crawl back and continue to try and bite. I'm at a bit of a loss as my DS1 only went through a brief phase of biting (but when he was breast feeding) and he seemed to grow out of quickly.
He has always been a bit of a bitey baby. I remember as a newborn when I would stick my finger in his mouth he would bite/gum down on it instead of suck, and he did the same when we tried to give him a dummy.
Is this normal??? Will he grow out of it or am I stuck with a biting child? Is there anything else I can do to deter him?

My 15month old went through a similar phase around that age. Only recently has it almost stopped. She still bites me occasionally when she gets over excited or tired. So yes as with everything- good or bad- it will pass and is completely normal.
Oh dd only bites me- never DH or Nanna.

Max is still a biter. They are biters or not and at 1 there isn't a lot you can do but distract and divert.
