My 7 month old loves to chew. He's often occupied with his various toys but he took a liking to my beautiful (did I say beautiful) area rug. I may have been guilty in allowing him to lay there but it's in the family room so he's welcome. Any time I caught him chewing, I would deflect with one of his toys but that kept him entertained for only 3 minutes and he would defer to the rug chewing. He finally chewed a through one of the edges and got a 1/2 inch out. I need help. I hear that a particular deodorant works. Help!
