10mos baby biting her lower lip

hi mummies. this might be a weird question, do u think it's true that the upper teeth will grow outwards if baby keep biting the lower lip? hubby recommended putting some bitter taste to her lower lip so she won't bite it, but I don't agree. I worry she will lose interest to eat or drink milk. appreciate your advice. tia!
