8 month old DD now has lower two teeth, it's sometimes taking several attempts to latch on and she's getting frustrated, please help!

It should be a passing phase as she gets used to her new teeth (though we do have a short period of slightly nippy feeding every time there's a new one coming through). You may find this article helps; kellymom.com/ages/older-infant/biting/

As for the frustration, I'd suggest trying anything you can do to encourage a deeper latch from the get go - I tend to revert to things I learnt very early on like the flipple technique.
