I flicked my kids mouth or I bite them back. And firmly said no.

It's a phase. It will pass.

Bite back! That's what I did with my 3 year old and she hasn't bitten me since. 🤷

It's actually appropriate to bite until they turn 3. It's their way if communicating. You just have to be very firm and let them know it’s bad behavior. I used to say “no biting” as I'm patting my index finger on his lips.
