There are many choices on the market, and as always, I did my research!!
A plastic cover that sticks onto your crib. Nice idea, but apparently it leaves a residue on the crib if you ever try to take it off. So, it's pretty much on there for life or until junior peels it off for you. ha!
This one velcros on and they have little velcro loops that you can strap toys onto, which seems cool. The negatives: some reviews say young children learn to pull the covers off easily - little velcro strips are no match for a determined baby or toddler! Also, they come in white, brown, or green. Not cute at all. I actually got one from a friend and have it on our back rail. It's doing fine so far, but if you ask me, it looks like a straight jacket for a crib! haha!
This is similar to Leachco's except this one has ties instead of velcro. I think my little one would be very enticed by the ties and eat/pull at them endlessly. They have more color options than Leachco, but all solids and not especially interesting.
This is the one I ultimately went with and I have to be honest about the reason: THEY ARE FREAKING CUTE!!!!!! Tons of fun patterns to choose from :) They attach with cute Paddington Bear style buttons. More on these crib rail covers below...
So, if you're looking for a functional AND stylish way to protect your crib rails and your baby, Raincoast Baby Crib Rail Covers are the way to go!
