My daughter and I are in need of some serious help. My 18month old granddaughter has been chewing on the sides of her crib for several months now. We've tried many many things to stop this but she finds a way to remove whatever we use (gummi rail cover, felt fabric, etc)
We are looking into moving her into a toddler bed since her crib is so damaged from her chewing and pulling off huge pieces of the wood off.... Yes, it's as scary as it sounds...
Our question is: Moms that have had trouble with chewing toddlers like this, when moved to a wooden toddler bed did your child continue the chewing on the new bed? We are having trouble finding an affordable metal frame toddler bed or even finding one at all. She's definitely ready for a toddler bed so the transition won't be an issue.
Bottom line: We are wondering if she's gonna chew on the side of the toddler bed too once we move her to it? If not, we can make our search for a bed much simpler by being able to choose a wooden frame.
