Every rattie is different I'm sure but it took a week or two for my rat Penny to go from ATTACK MODE to warning nips/moody nips. It took her about a month after that to get over nip mode completely.

Just be patient, and remember she is still hormonal. She will get over it, even if it doesn't seem that way!

depends on the rat. my neighbours rat allowed anyone to put their fingers in the cage within a day of having her babies, and she let us pick them up whenever we wanted to as well.
