How do I get my baby to stop biting?

My son is almost 11 months old and just started biting a few weeks ago. When he gets angry or gets in trouble for anything he bites. And he bites really hard. I dont know what to do, any suggestions might help.

  • NEVER bite your baby back they don't know any better that would be like saying you hit your baby for getting into things they are not supposed to at that age they do not understand that it is bad and hurts, they do not know what no means. i tell my 10 month old no and put him in his play pen for about 2 minutes

  • Thank you for the ideas. It is really frustrating because he understands what I am saying when I tell him no, if he is getting into something and I tell him no he stops, but not with the biting thing....
