Default Licking and biting until bleeding

I’m concerned that my 4 month old is becoming aggressive. She begins licking me now and then nibbles and then bites hard and my skin starts bleeding. Her normal behaviour has changed since I got her. She loves cuddling now and the only thing that has changed about my scent is my soap. I’m worried that this is becoming a normal thing for her. She doesn’t seem agitated or stressed out. And after she bites she licks another spot on me.

I could be wrong, but maybe she likes your soap and is trying to eat it?

It often is just a habit they get into. Some like the taste of the salt on our skin. The best thing you can do is to make sure you always keep something like a small fleece blanket between her and your skin. Often time they will stop trying to bite if they don't get a chance to for awhile.
