It's typical kitten behavior to chew on everything. Use only toys when you play with her, i.e. don't tickle her with your fingers, use a toy so she gets the idea that the toy is her "prey," not your hands. If she does start chewing on your hands or feet, take them away until she settles down, then continue with a toy. for more info on kitten behavior, go to the cat pages at about.com

If it becomes a problem, gently grab the skin behind her neck and push down. Then firmly say "no" or hiss. This will act like her mother as she trained her as a kitten. Don't hurt her, just let her know that it isn't acceptable. Try getting some mint or catnip chew toys, kittens teethe just like babies.
