This can become a problem and it is very difficult to discipline babies of this age.If he bites you must be very firm with him. Just say 'Stop doing that!' in a firm clear voice. Show him that you mean business. If he continues to bite simply put him in his bedroom and do not let him out until he is quiet.Do this each and very time that he starts to bite. You don't want him to bite other children so this is the time to get this right.
