Re: I thought I was lucky enough to escape the biting. :(
My lo went through a phase of doing this as well. She also did it at the very end of nursing- like she was pinching off the stream or something. I always said no sternly and took the boob away. It didn't seem like it was having an effect, but I kept doing it and after a few weeks she stopped. I dunno if it was because of what I was doing or just because she got tired of it.
Keep being consistent and she'll get it eventually.
Oh yeah!! It helps to pay attention to when they stop sucking. They can't bite while they're sucking (their tongue is in the way), so it will usually come after they stop. I used to watch for when she stopped sucking and have my finger there ready to break suction and pull her off before she got the chance to bite.
