15 week old has cut 2 bottom teeth and has been clamping down on my nipple, it hurts like hell.
I yell out ouch in reaction but it doesn't faze her.
How can I get her to stop when she's so young and doesn't understand no?

Watch her attachment, hold her close so she feels secure, and keep your pinky finger there ready to break the attachment as soon as she looks like biting.
If you watch bub, they often shows signs that they are finished or about to mess about before it happpens.
p.s. yelling out never helped here. babies often think it is funny and do whatever caused the yell again trying to gte a reaction

Ouch. It hurts so much doesn't it?
I used to just take her off and put her down, sometimes on the floor. If necessary I would put my pinkie in between her gums to should would let go. My dd was older when she started doing this so she was more able to make the association between bite=no boob.

SPG that's what I'm worried about, that she won't make the association being so young.
And yes actually Bubbles, I've noticed she slows on boob all of a sudden, holds it in her mouth for a second and then clamps down.
