Tips for biting while nursing??

Whenever DD is teething I starting having problems with her biting while nursing... Last time was about a month ago (she was around 9 months - getting tooth #7). Whenever she bit me I would say "No" and put her down on the floor. She was really clingy at that point, so just putting her down was enough to get her to stop. It gradually got better (went from biting EVERY nursing session to maybe once a day until the tooth came through, then she stopped all together). Now she is much more active, and when I try putting her down, she just crawls off to find something else to do. She thinks it is so funny when she bites me, and usually smiles or laughs when I say "No." Any suggestions?? Or do I just have to wait it out until the tooth finally pops through :/ I'm afraid she's not getting enough milk because I stop nursing when she bites... is that ok to do?? (I offer frequently, but the last couple days she has had VERY short nursing sessions - sometimes only 2-3 minutes.)
