For biting I usually recommend taking the baby off asap and stopping the feeding. If the baby wants to bf more put him back on but if the biting restarts end the feeding. It can take some time depending on the baby to stop the biting but you need to be fast and consistent and most will get the idea that breasts are not for biting.

Glad to hear things are going better. I'll have to add your techniques to my list of things to try. (My best ideas come from BTDT moms!)
