i just try to keep something in their mouths, i.e. pacies, cold teething rings, etc. it also seemed to help with my daughter that i said "NO BITING!" every single time she bit when she first started biting (and still do), then gave her a one-minute time out where i held her firmly against me and wouldn't let her move or get down. then at the end of the minute i said "NO BITING" again and let her down. now she actually pauses before she bites, and most of the time doesn't actually bite down any more. my b/g twins are 14 months now and cutting molars. they are having a horrible time with it, but actually aren't biting too much. i think it's due to the looks and the "don't even think about it's" they get when i feel there little teeth on me or see their mouths on each other. hope this helps.
