He just turned one he has both top teeth and a side one and both bottom teeth. He lays his head on me then turns around and bites me hard. I tell him NO very firm but he keeps doing it... I don't want to smack him or anything my friend suggested time out and I think it may work but does he understand at 12 months why I'm putting him in time out and he will just cry and crawl away... Help

NEVER bite a baby. What is wrong with TheDiva320?
I agree that your baby is just needing something to bite. Provide lots of teethers. Anticipate and avoid getting bit. The way I look at it if you know you have a baby that bites and you get bit it's your fault for not avoiding it. No punishing, no yelling, no firm talk, no hitting, no tapping. There is no way a 12 month old would know what a time out is and it could be devasting.
People on cm that don't want to say they are hitting their kids call it tapping. It's a code word.
