Gummi Crib Rail Shopping Tips

So, you think the worst was over, baby is sleeping at night (at least more or less regularly) and you have given into the illusion that peace is back at home. And then the teething starts. But before you even see the first pearly white baby tooth, you notice that your cute little sunshine starts to resembles more and more a hungry puppy and starts to chew on whatever it can lay hands, sorry gums on. Babies, like puppies, chew to alleviate the pain and general discomfort that comes with the break through of their first teeth. They even chew your furniture. Whilst you can put your puppy into a metal dog crate that is “chew safe”, doing the same with your little human treasure is obviously out of question. So, you need to protect your furniture, baby crib included, hence enters the gummi crib rail protection. Whilst you can protect your other furniture by simply supervising your baby or toddler, the crib is the place that needs some extra attention simply for the reason that baby spends most of its time, awake or asleep, in it. And when it wakes up, it will start to chew the rail. Not only is that bad for the look of the crib, baby can also hurt itself with wooden splinters or swallow bits it has chewed off. Not very healthy either.
