My daughter had 4 teeth by the time she was 6 weeks old. When she would bite I just pulled her away, said "no biting" and waited a minute or 2 and put her back on the breast. It didn't take very long before she got the idea. I nursed til she was 14 months old with very few biting incidents. If you are really set on stopping, try cold compresses for the engorgement issue.

Are you sure you want to quit nursing? My son went through a biting stage and I just told him "No" and unlatched him. He caught on pretty quickly. If he bit me he didn't get to nurse.
