Gummy baby chomping down

My DD is nearly five months old, and EBF. The last couple of days she has started chomping down at the end of a feed when she is done. She doesn't have any teeth yet, so I'd like to try and stop her doing this before we get to that point! What can I do?

I shared this with another mom in this forum, but I know the feeling...ouch! I have an adorable 13 month old who experimented with that when he was 6 months old. What worked with us was the moment he bit me I responded right away with a flick on the cheek and saying "no bite". That might sound evil, but after a couple times of needing a flick, he has not attempted to bite me again to this day smile

Mine (14 weeks) has taken to unlatching mid feed and then relatching onto the underside of my breast. It's a bit breathtaking! I figured it's babies exploring and playing -and being little fuckers-
