Don't draw attention to the behavior. What I did if she would bite me is lift her away, sit her down and say "No Biting", then give her a toy to play with or distract her with something else. The more attention you draw to the behavior, the more it will be reinforced. As for her biting herself, I don't really think there's much to do about it. She's not going to hurt herself. Good luck! They grow out of it!
