Started weaning my 11 month old because of biting!

My daughter is 11 months old and I was trying to breastfeed her till at least a year and with her teething she has started biting. How do you deal with biting? I am feeling like I am not doing something right. I was nursing her in the morning at nap-time and at bedtime. She would get up during the night and want to nurse as well. So I am feeling like I am going to lose the bonding time that we have had. Am I doing something wrong?

You won't lose the bonding time you had. For biting, make sure that when your daughter does it say NO kind of loud to scare her a little. Then it will only take her a few times to catch on that she can't do that. She will probably cry when you say no but that is good, it means she is getting an understanding that it is bad.
