It is likely to happen at least once but if you know what to do you can stop it. If he ever does bite intentionally you simply unlatch him, set him down, wait a couple minutes, then try again; say something like "Are you ready to nurse gently? No biting mommy." Even if he seems to young to understand the words he'll figure out real quick that if you bite then you don't eat. This worked with my third son in 2 days and he was 8 months.

I loved when my babies went from gummy smiles to toothy smiles. When we mentioned to MIL that DS got his first teeth, her response was, "Oh, I guess it's time to wean." That was 2 months ago, but we haven't weaned yet. Thankfully DS doesn't bite often. It can be painful, but babies can learn nursing manners.
