I worked in a child care with children ages 18mo-36mo and when we had a biting issue it was typically a communication problem. Teach both children a better way to communicate there needs. I.E sign language, pointing,, photo communication or talking (if there ready).Also don't forget this might all be for attention. So,when one child bites the other, ignore the child who bit and only pay attention to the injured child and/or really increase the positive attention you give each child. Catching the good--- thank you for reading that book quietly, Mommy loves when you...... Try for 24 hour doing nothing but catching the good and see if the biting decrease. Also pay attention to if the child(ren) bite more frequently if your SO is home, out in public if other children are over etc.. this will help you proof it is an attention thing or not.
