crib rail covers


Cora doesn't know what to think about the new rail covers for her crib. They sure aren't as satisfying to chew on.


But I don't think she's too unhappy with them. The covers are simple pads with two layers of cotton batting, one cut narrow just to run down the middle of the pad (just because I'm cheap). I secured the first one with heavy duty snaps, which look so professional, but then I got all paranoid about the little pieces coming apart, so the other three are held on with velcro. And the fabrics coordinate with the ones in her room, in case she and her crib ever move back in there.:) I'm in no hurry.

We didn't buy a crib bedding set, but I wonder if the for-looks-only bumpers (which they recommend against using) could be repurposed into rail covers. If you already have them, that might be an easy and pretty way to protect the crib from tiny teeth.

  1. What a cutie! Love the last photo. I need to tuck this idea away as future words of wisdom.

  2. I just love these pictures. She is such a beautiful baby, and this is such a fantastic idea! If I didn't have a crib on it's last leg (and with no visible teeth marks... yet!) I would make one STAT! ;)

  4. Great idea - my wee one is starting to chew on his rails too. I also didn't buy the standard bumper bads but made some and now i now how to re-use them!

  5. Clever! I've had a yard of that IKEA hippo print for a while now - it is fun to see what others are doing with it. Especially nice twist with the pink polka dots.
