Exclamation Help! My DS has started biting!!

Hi mamas,

I have already asked DS's pediatrician about this, but wanted some more tips or tricks any of you mamas may have to deal with this problem!

DS has just gotten his 2 bottom teeth in... they haven't been "in" (where they finally cut through the gum) but a few days - and he has started nipping me with them! A couple of times, they were really pretty good bites!! The ONLY thing I have been able to guess at so far by his timing is that I think he's doing it when the breast is empty! (?) Please, mamas, if you have dealt with this before, I'd love to hear from you on how I can get him to stop! He is 7 months old now, and though I think he understands "No" to an extent, he still does it! Not every feeding, but let's face it, once is more than enough!! (Ouch!!) His doc said to tell him "No!" firmly, and end the feeding... that's all I've tried thus far. Thanks in advance!!
