I woke to the sound of . . .

This morning I woke up to a scraping sound. As I really awakened, I realized what this scraping was. . . Hayden attempting to take the finish off of his crib rail! You see, I love Hayden's furniture. The crib can be used as a full size head and foot board later, so we thought, wow, he can get many years out of this beautiful furniture. What were we thinking!? Kids are rough on everything, so it may not look so pretty in a few years. It still looks great from a distance!Also, I'm beginning to think getting teeth early isn't all that great. Hayden got 2 around 5 months, 4 more around 7 months, and another came in a month ago, for a grand total of 7! I guess he figured he would put them to good use! And this is what he accomplished just this morning! By the end of the week, he may have taken all the finish off! If any of you have tips or suggestions, please help! One Step Ahead makes a crib rail protector that I may order, but I don't know what to do in the meantime. Did anyone else have this issue with your kids? I'd love to know we're not alone! THE DAMAGE

Oh Hayden! He's going to give the furniture the antiqued and distressed look. Love the painted wall!

I fear the same thing will be happening at my house. I absolutely love our cribs too and they are supposed to eventually go into full sized beds. I have high hopes of them lasting for years - but the boys may have other plans :). Last week, my mom said that my Hayden was biting on the crib. So, you are not alone. If you find any good ways to curb this, I'd love to hear them.

I've ordered a Gummi Crib Rail teether from One Step Ahead, so I'll let you know how that works once we get it! Jamie Stahl suggested wrapping a blanket around the rail and securing it with zip (?) ties in the meantime. So far, it has worked!
