so rather than working on the biting issue you think its best toy just wean her? my daughter bit me when she started teething, when she bit I put her down and within a few days she stopped biting and now months later she still breastfeeds, at 7 months milk is still a crucial part of her diet and will be for many more months, you need to teach her that biting is not acceptable, weaning her will not teach her to stop biting it will just remove nutrients from her diet, work at the problem don't create another one.

She is two young for that. She should have breastmilk at least until she is 2 years old.
Here's some help in how to deal with your baby biting and to stop it.
And good luck!

You could buy a breast pump, that way your baby still gets the benefits of your breast milk and you forgo the pain.
