Don't bite the hand (or boob) that feeds you

Ellie has always been a biter but now that the little girl has a tooth it hurts like HELL! I've tried just pulling her off everytime she bites. It doesn't completely work. Any ideas would be great!! How do you get your baby to quit biting you?

Oh blah. I commented but it didn't take for some reason. Here we go again...

I yelp (can't help that!) and it startles them but I also pull them in closer which forces them to release their "grip".

I do the same thing Abby does. I'm so not looking forward to teeth!

I yell a bit to scare them, and even tap their mouth a little bit. One of mine bit once and never again. The other continued to bite now and then and when I got sick of it enough I weaned at 10 months.
