 My sweet little baby girl has cut two teeth already (she's 6 months old right now).  In the last week, she's started biting down on me while nursing.  Ouch!  Is there any way to curb this little habit? It's super painful!

Welcome to the board and thanks for stopping by!

Biting can be a phase that some nursing babies go through but fortunately for most babies, it's only a phase. Have you tried giving pain relievers when she seems to be in a lot of discomfort? Have you noticed if the biting seems to take place when baby is done nursing or more toward the beginning of a nursing session?

Here's a link with lots of good tips to deal with the biting phase: http://kellymom.com/ages/older-infant/biting/  Take a spin through and let us know what questions you might have. Hang in there! Hope this passes really quickly!
