Hi everyone! I have a one year old that bites me constantly. I don't know what to do about it anymore. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Ouch, you poor thing. I would:

Try to find a pattern to when it happens and then distract just before it occurs.

If you do get bitten, say 'No' or 'No biting' clearly and remove all attention.

Provide something acceptable to bite on.

I have biters, I used to pop them down when they did it, and say biting hurts.
Also used to give them a biting object to chew on instead - we used a wooden spoon.
I have to admit it took ages for them to stop, but it did eventually.
