Will my baby bite me while breastfeeding?

In brief: Yes

He won't bite on purpose but it does happen, especially when teething begins.
You can remedy this rather quickly by telling him "no biting" and stopping the feed any time it occurs.

In brief: No

Usually not once the feedings are well established.
Now, when your baby starts teething, that may or may not be a different story. Some babies can figure out that if they bite and mom takes her breast away, they need to stop biting, and will. Others may give mom a slightly harder time.
