I nursed til a year, and got a few bites. Try yelping when she does it or putting your finger in her mouth and unlatching her and telling her no bites.

I hate to say it but my baby is only one month old and she bites down with just her gums and it kills!

Next time she bites, take her off, set her down, and tell her "it's not ok to bite mommy!" After a few minutes, try to nurse her again. Keep doing it until she stops. She'll learn that if she wants milk, she better not bite. It only took Lilith a couple of times. She mainly did it when she was teething and they bothered her.
