if you want to keep nursing her but no biting you can wear a breast shield when you nurse her. I changed my son over to a shield when he got his first tooth b/c he was also biting me terribly. He is now 3 and 1/2 and still nurses every day ... but the downside is he doesn't know how to nurse without the shield now so we always have to keep it safe and remember to pack it when traveling.

for the most part she is not biting so much anymore but i still want to stop nursing! she only bites anymore when she drinks me dry and nothing else is coming out.
