Both my sons did this my oldest much worse then the younger one and the older one was much harder to break of it then the younger one, but I think for the most part I have ended it in both them. First off as I tell any parent that is having problems, read the book, "Raising Godly Tomatoes" Even if you are not a religious person the general parenting teaching this women uses is the best I have every seem or read. It is definitely worth you checking out their website, just do a search for Raising Godly Tomatoes and their website should pop up. But my short answer to your question that worked wonders on my youngest, if he bit me I would flick him in the mouth, not hard, but just enough for him to realize his mouth was being bad. I would say ouch really loud, flick his mouth and push him away refusing to give him attention for a few minutes. and anytime it seemed like he was going to bite me I would tell him to not bite mommy.
