So plz remember before I start I start my story. That I never bf my daughter. But she started biting me last week. But it was ramdom, and when she bites me its on the side of my boob. She doesn't bite anyone else. So my question to everyone is why? I'm sorry if this sounds weird. Sorry about my spelling

 Not sure why she would be doing that, but when she does it act very upset, and like your crying. Get her to feel bad for you, tell her that hurts you and ask her to give you a hug, make a very sad face. Then after the hug, smile and tell her thank you for the hug, you love hugs, but not biting.

oops, so missed that ! she could have seen someone else breastfeeding, tv or in real life and since she never had been breast fed, just views it as biting. 

Also, I likewhat robyann said. Act like youre crying. You could also have her bite herself if the pretending to cry doesnt work. shes not to young to understand that. when she bites you, tell her it hurts and then put her arm to her open mouth and press up on her chin and tell her to bite. Obviously dont press hard enough to draw blood or anything. but enough that she gets that quick feeling of a bite. She is to young to understand that if you bite her (which some parents will do) is the same thing as when she bites you, but if she can cause pain on herself from her mouth, then shell understand that she can cause pain on you from her mouth.

Hope it helps
