    My son also did this around 9 mths and around 1 yr. It lasted about two weeks both times. The same with my daughter when she was about one. I also followed advice from that site, kellymom. Stopped nursing, explained it hurts. Had a little break and then continued. I didn't take too long breaks, because I was afraid of nursing strikes, especially when my son was only 9 mths.

    This happened with my twins. One thing that helped was always having an alternate thing available during nursing that was appropriate to bite: they liked silicone teething rings and those silicone teething necklaces that you (the mom) wear. Whenever they would bite, I would unlatch, and say (firmly but kindly) "You can't bite mommy. Bite this!" And I would give them the item they could bite. I won't say it eliminated biting, but it helped and they really liked biting those objects while teething. It seemed to give them a lot of relief. Also, you may find that you can predict when they are going to bite. My twins would both start making a certain noise -- it was sort of like "nom nom nom" but in an agitated way, like their teeth were hurting or something. I started offering the teething object when I heard that sound, and they would usually be glad to take it.
