help he is biting

My 9month old started biting today.
We were at his 9month check up and he grabed his doctors hand And he bit her. He has never done this be4 so I thought he did it because he didn't want her to touch his ears(he hates it when people touch hid ear)

Well like I said he has never bit anyone be4 so I didn't think much off it at first. But now he keeps biting me.

He will grab my hand or arm or lag (if he is playing on the floor) and bite me hard as fuck.

What can I do to make him stop be4 he starts biting other people like his big sister (5) or someone outside our family ..please help

Redirect him on to a teether that is hard and will not break.   Is he teething at all?   We would tell dd No in a firm voice, give teether and then put her down.

I like this answer. Say No firmly and hand him a teether and nod and smile and say yes when he bites it.

And firm no and redirection.  You'll learn the signs when he's ready to bite, and catch him then!

 A stern "NO BITE" and redirect him with something he can bite on. He's probably teething or he liked the reaction he first got from the person he bit and it's now a game.

Press a finger gently back on his forehead.

No one can bite anything while their head is pressed backwards a bit.

Redirection is the key with this. Sounds likes he is teething. With your 5 year old was there anything in particular you remember that helped her when she was teething ?
