How to Choose the Best Crib Rail Cover for Your Baby

Does your baby bite his crib like the baby in the picture above? If so, then your baby is likely going through the teething phase.

A crib rail cover may be the very thing you need to keep both your baby and crib safe from harm until the teething stage comes to an end.

If you are new to the world of baby products then choosing a crib rail cover can prove to be a daunting task. I have created this guide to help you avoid wasting your money on an ineffective baby crib cover.

Comparing one crib rail cover to another can be a difficult task. Especially when each box is advertising how great their rail protector is. Below are some points to take into consideration when comparing crib rail covers.

Is the crib rail cover a drool trap?

When your baby starts chewing on the crib rail cover there is going to be drool. Lots and lots of drool. A crib rail cover should not only be easy to clean but also prevent drool from building up inside it.

A fabric crib rail, for instance, can soak up drool leaving it constantly damp. The underside of a damp crib rail cover is the perfect environment for growing mold and mildew.

Fortunately, plenty of fabric teething rails have a waterproof backing to prevent drool from soaking through to the other side.

Does the crib rail cover have loops

Some crib rail covers are designed with loops. These loops are perfect for hanging extra teething toys to give your baby an alternative to chewing on the cover.

What color is the crib rail cover

When choosing a crib rail cover it is worth remembering that lighter colors stain much easier than darker ones.

While a white crib rail cover may match your nursery’s decor perfectly, extra care will be needed to maintain the crisp color.
