How can I get my almost 12 month son to stop biting?

He just started biting me (for example, he will bite my shoulder if I'm holding him or bite my leg if I'm not) last week when we were packing up to move to a new city and he has continued since the move. I firmly tell him 'no' and I have put him in time out in his crib, but nothing is working. He doesn't do it too often, but it still hurts (he has five teeth now). Please help!

PS He only bites me, nobody else.

  • show him how it feels, because if he is in or ever goes to daycare they can and WILL kik him out for biting!!! also yes i know its wrong but get a cheap and when i say cheap like a dollar toothbrush and brush his teeth once with soap after he bites her will never do it again and if he tries tell him your going to get the "blue" (whatever color you choose!) toothbrush!!! he will be scared!
