As a parent, there are a hundred different items you need to keep everyone safe and comfortable. You need the crib, changing table, and car seat. You need the swing, a lounger, and more clothes than you’ve ever owned for yourself.But then there are some items you aren’t sure about. Is a Diaper Genie necessary? What about a play yard? You have the heavy duty outdoor stroller, but do you need a lightweight indoor version? Technically you don’t any of these items, but they make life a lot easier.

When it comes to a crib rail cover, we often hear the same question. A lot of people think they are vanity accessories, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. They give babies a safe and healthy spot to chew without causing damage to themselves or the crib.
Teething babies chewing on crib
According to BabyCenter.com, most babies sprout their first tooth between 4 and 7 months. And once they start to teethe, they will often chew on anything to get some relief. They’ll use their own fingers, any toy, or anything within arm’s reach. Even after their teeth have come in, there will still be some soreness and tenderness around the gums that is relieved with pressure.
Pressure is usually the preferred method for relief, although the cold sensation also helps. If your baby has really bad pain, you can give some over-the-counter pain relief like baby Tylenol, but make sure to read all the warnings and consult with your doctor if you’re unsure how much to give.
Protect baby and the crib
As your baby spends time in the crib, he or she will inevitably chew on the crib rails. It’s an easy-to-access surface that’s hard enough to really bite. Some babies chew so hard on the rails that they strip off the paint and tear off pieces of wood. You need a crib rail cover for two reasons:
- You definitely do not want your child swallowing little pieces of paint or wood from the rails. Not only is this a choking hazard, but there might be harmful toxins depending on the type of wood used to make the crib and the type of paint used on it.
- A crib is an expensive purchase. It’s usually the most expensive item you buy. Some of them are so pricey that they get passed down to family members. Or, you might want to sell it when baby is finished using it. In either case, you should preserve it.
Like you should for all your products, it’s best to go organic. Our organic crib rail covers aren’t just super durable to withstand those little chompers. They're also made using a patented design that keeps them securely in place which adds a further layer of protection for your baby.

As a mother, Jennifer understands the importance of offering nothing by the best for baby. Motivated by teeth marks on her children’s cribs, she decided to design a teething rail cover after trying products that didn’t measure up when it came to quality or style. What she found out made her even more concerned about children’s safety and health: The toxic chemicals used in the production of synthetic materials have been linked to birth defects, reproductive disorders, and weakened immune systems.
She asked herself, “What if I could revolutionize the way parents decorated their crib with a safe and stylish teething rail cover that could be placed on the crib from day one?” Babee Talk® launched in 2014 with organic bedding and accessories. Chew-friendly, drool-friendly, and organic inside and out, her products ensure a healthy start in life for babies.
She only offers products that she would provide for her own children. She hopes moms and dads will start to talk about the importance of choosing safe, healthy, eco-friendly products, especially for babies.
