The situation you have expressed is pretty normal for a 5-6 month old Labrador Retriever puppy. For puppies of this age, I recommend a Multi Pet Chilly Bone Canvas Dog Toy For Puppies. These are fabric bones that you soak in water and put in the freezer for a few hours.
The iced toy acts like a teething ring. Whenever she chews on something, give her a strong “NO!” and then give her a Chilly Bone. When she starts to bite on it, praise her over and over again. This will teach her what is appropriate and what is not.
We always kept 2 in our house so one was always frozen. When used in conjunction with crate training, you can keep bad nipping and chewing to a minimum.
