My 21 mo is a biter. I tried everything--redirection, spanking, biting back, time-outs--and nothing worked. I got her a book called, "Teeth Are Not For Biting," and it really helped.The have a book made by the same people called, "Hands Are Not For Hitting."
Whenever DD bites, or acts like she is going to bite, I use a line from the book: "Get a hug. Mmmmm, that feels better." The first several times I read it, I always gave her a hug at that part. Now when I say that, she stops dead in her tracks and gives me a hug, and doesn't try to bite me afterwards. We read that book about 3 times a day (she loves it and always brings it to me to read to her) and the message is really getting across. HTH and good luck!
