Biting nurser

My almost 9mo DS has been working on cutting an upper tooth this past week, and at times it seems like he is trying to use me as a teether...OUCH! Any advice to stop a biting baby? He is also extremely fidgety while nursing. I can't nurse in public anymore, either, as he is very distracted, or just plays (or bites).
It has made me dread nursing times. He does also receive 3 bottles of formula from a bottle each day due to concerns of slow weight gain early on. I got over the fear of using formula, and have felt much more relaxed about our nursing times...until the fidgeting and biting began. Now I am tempted to just give up nursing altogether. Any encouragement?

My daughter bit me once. I immediately yelped which caused her to stop nursing and said very firmly, "no bite" and then put her down. She looked at me like I had 3 heads and immediately burst out crying really hurting tears. She was very upset. I let her go for about 45 seconds. Calmed her down and we nursed again. She never bit me again. We just weaned at 17 months.

My son started biting when cutting teeth at 4-5 months. Now almost 15 months. Nothing stopped him from biting. We just nurse at night now when he wakes and still sometimes bites down and pulls off. Ouch! As he has gotten older he has become more like a gymnast when it comes to nursing. Now he flips around taking my nipple with him lol when he was smaller though I found that holding something in his hand like a small toy or wearing a necklace really helped
