my daughter has started chewing/biting on her crib. we have a dark colored crib and when she bites at it the paint comes off and covers her face and gets in her mouth. she has 5 teeth now and just started doing this last week. At first it was just the front side of the crib, so i bought a cloth teething guard and thought I solved the problem. Well today I put her in there to try and get her to take a nap and it looks like a beaver chewed the sides!(she stands up now and just bites down on it. there are teeth marks pretty deep (and she was only in there about 10 minutes!). I can't find a protector to buy for the side rails, i have a convertible crib, so the side is at a slant, i don't know how else to describe it, but basically it is not flat on all for sides of the crib, so the thing i bought for the front won't work for the sides. I can't seem to find anything online that would work for this type of crib, or actually anything that protects the side rail. Does anyone have any ideas? Do all babies do this? My crib is a bonavita. Thanks.
