Stop biting me!!

I have 5 month old twins.  I'm still breastfeeding, which I had to give up with my first two kids due to pumping issues when I returned to work.  I quit breastfeeding the first two when they were 4 months old- right before they got their first teeth.  My babies are about to get their first teeth.  I can actually see little teeth under their gums.  For the last week, my son has been clenching my nipple between his gums and pulling.  It is so extremely painful!  I really don't want to stop breastfeeding, but there is no way that I can endure this for another 7 months.

Has anyone else had this issue?  Why is he doing this?  What can I do to stop him?

I almost quit at 4 months when ds3 started doing that :( it hurt so much but I basically suffered through it until I reached my goal of 6 months. ds1 and ds2 never did that either and none of my kids got teeth before 8 months.

I hear you were supposed to put them down when thy do that and try again in a few minutes but thy may be too young for that.
Do they use a bottle? They may have some nipple confusion.
