Aiden has been chewing on his crib. This started when he started teething so I thought it was normal. I bought him a cherrywood sleigh crib with the plastic "teething rails" along the sides. He will not chew on those. He has managed to scrape the stain off of both end pieced and the long side piece under the teething rail. I have checked with the manufacturer and made sure it was non toxic and checked with his Pediatrician who said it is because he is teething. The problem is he finds little comfort in teething rings and other such things. If he wakes up in the middle of the night or from a nap and doesnt make noise to let us know he is awake he will chew on his bed. He has 6 teeth and has not slowed down chewing at all. I am worried about the amount of his crib that has been injested. I am also worried that now he is chewing a spot that the stain is gone and is chewing plain wood.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get him to stop this? nothing so far has worked and I am out of ideas. Any advice would be appreciated.
