to start discipline? i dont mean time outs or spankings or anything like that. but dd has been biting and i was thinking of sternly saying no and putting her down for a minute or two. i wouldnt leave or anything but not talk to her while she was down.

biting while nursing or biting in general?

If it's while she's nursing, calmly say, "Ok, no nursing right now." and put her down. If it's in general, is it because she's teething?

its both when shes nursing and not. she is teething and we have tried tylenol and teething toys/frozen wash cloths etc. she throws the toys and wash cloths down then turns and bites then laughs...

try teething tablets.  Six months is too young, they won't have any idea what you are trying to do. My pedi told me really until 18 months diverting their attention is your best option--although for when she began biting and smacking at 14 months, he said put them down and walk away so they learn that is not a way to get attention.

Never too young to teach nursing manners. :)

Figure what works for you to get her to stop. But not stopping it soon may cause issues later with it. A stern no is always ok.

a 6 month old doesn't understand any kind of discipline.

If you need help on what those are go to the breastfeeding moms group. It's in a sticky at the top.
