Why DIY Crib Rail Covers

Why DIY Crib Rail Covers

When baby started getting mobile it seemed like your house turned into a maximum security prison overnight. There are bars, latches and clamps everywhere. Seriously it’s likehouse just got an Alcatraz Extreme Home Makeover. I believe you would do anything to keep that little one safe.


And apparently, you would do anything to keep beautiful convertible crib from looking like a beaver just stopped by for a snack.


Did you  remember when we did our baby registry and saw crib rail cover and thought it was horrific that they would have to make such a thing. Your baby won’t eat his crib! That’s just barbarous, clearly they are for the uncivilized cannibalistic babies.


You knew that he or she liked to treat his crib like MMA fighting ring.  The baby will on the baby monitor standing at one end of his crib, launching himself to the other end, and bouncing backwards, WWF style. But You had no clue he was eating his crib.


It wasn’t until you noticed a bunch of blackish-brown specks all over his mouth, chin and cheeks, and wondered where it came from, looked around and discovered this.


The horror!  So you sprung into action to find something to help preserve what was left of the crib, and I guess it wouldn’t hurt to have something that also prevented him from ingesting wood varnish.


Have you searched for crib rail covers on Etsy? Have you seen the ridiculous amount of money people think you are willing to pay for such a thing? Sure they are adorable and would coordinate nicely with his other nursery décor, but I realized I still need to buy more diapers and formula. So I moved onto something cheaper.

 And yo will find some other chep ways to save your baby’ s teeth from the rail.DIY the baby crib rail cover  is a best choice.Her is a great mother’s account:

I was so proud of myself. I made this and it cost me nothing! “Yay!” Is what I said until Miles yanked those ribbons right off and threw the crib rail cover onto the floor like a day old donut, double knots and all. I had to go back to the drawing board. Velcro? Hah. That didn’t work either. Now I am $2.99 into this project and am about to give up, when my husband saw my desperation and recommended industrial strength staples. Yay, that wasn’t going to happen, but together we settled on upholstery tacks.

Ta-Dah! It worked!
