Q: Hello! Our 9-month-old sleeps in the Ola! crib from Casa Kids, which we love. However, it's creative form has provided some difficulties. Right now, our little one has just gotten his first teeth and is gnawing away at the crib rails. We need to figure out some way to protect them! The two wooden rails with slats is no problem, but the curved ends are really stumping us. They are too thin for the gummy rail protectors we tried (which, consequently, are too small for the the thick wooden rails). Given that he will be chewing on whatever is there, we really want the solution to be non-toxic (I'm not sure if sticky foam is the best thing for a little one to be chewing on!) Any ideas? I am a beginner sewer, so I could put something simple together if I could just figure out the logistics!

Editor: My son uses a curved crib, but he wasn't a rail teether so we didn't encounter this issue. Have you? Give your ideas to Anu below.
