Was hoping to see more on this myself...
My son bit a lot, like you are describing, right after he started getting teeth at six months. I didn't think it would ever end, but it did, and I hadn't been bit for quite a while.
That is, until he finally got teeth on top and bottom at the same place (9 mo). Now it's a fun game to see mommy's reaction! He just laughs, like he always does when I say "no" or sneeze or anything like that. I've tried what you said, to no avail -- the first time, I ended up just unlatching and stopping whenever he bit, eventually he stopped doing it but it took a while. He also didn't do it (mostly) when I laid down to nurse, but that's not always what I want to do!
As for this time, since the "no's" and the crying out aren't working this time either, I guess I will just keep stopping the feeding, without much ado (if I can manage it) and see if he stops the biting again.
Sorry that wasn't much help!
