Surely the most pfb thing ever or am I wrong?someone on fb asking if anywhere sells baby knees pads as there 10 month old stops when he gets to edge of rug or carpet?!? Only started crawling a week ago, is 10 months! I nearly choked on my tea! People are plain mad surely??

I remember a baby that had anti-gravity powers when placed on grass....

otherwise the whole concept is ridiculous. Never too early to learn that if it hurts, don't do it.

Headbands are worse than knee pads............just

no, coz im the kind of parent to put vasaline on babygates when mine started climbing over them whilst thinking

"that'll learn em"

disclaimer.. i didnt really do that.. just thought about it.
i do like the mop idea though.. could catch on.

I use baby legwarmers for this purpose. If dd is going outside and wearing tights. It saves her wrecking her tights.

Or do you mean actual knee pads like for roller skating in?

We had a sisal carpet laid between DC1 and DC2. I wonder if that's why DC2 walked much earlier than DC1 ?

i assumed they were to protect the knees of their trousers, not the actual baby confused

I wouldn't buy them but my ds has just turned 2 and is delayed so crawls super fast everywhere when not cruising . Every single pair of Jeans he wears are worn at the knees so maybe there is something to be said for them. However I will probably just buy new jeans !

"kaster" for mess free feeding just use one of those cut out boards you take fun photos by the seaside

or feed them through the letter box!grin

I saw them advertised years ago.
just idiotic.

babies knees are already padded.

Idocrazythings Sat 22-Jun-13 13:27:08

I bought some. They were crap. Wouldn't stay on DD hated wearing them. Never even bothered trying them on other children after the PFB!

My baby's knees just feel like knees...

<disappointed to not have a squishy one>

Maybe I am squishing in the wrong place envy

Hahaha. Mine used to do a sort of hands and feet crawl on cold floors.we used to call it the spider crawl.

"I did attach dusters though to my DDs knees which a hair band so that she dusted our wooden floor as she went."

This is a great idea. You should patent it and go on Dragon's Den!

They have half tights from bumgenius for this purpose. I really like them and used them with my son. Some ofthe real nappy sites sell them.

And the rain mate wouldn't have helped with dd2 as she would fall asleep face first in her dinner! grin

RhondaJean Sat 22-Jun-13 10:36:48

My DDs had some little trousers with quilted knees in them, I remember thinking they must be comfy to crawl in. Dd1 never crawled anyway...(born awkward grin)

Teapot13 Sat 22-Jun-13 10:26:35

DD1 had tights with heart-shaped pads on the knees -- might have been from M&S. I've seen them at the Gap, too.

KobayashiMaru Sat 22-Jun-13 10:15:24

babies don't have kneecaps, they don't need padding.

That is GENIUS Kaster - I'm pretty handy with a sewing machine, I'll see what I can whip up.

That sounds like a goo idea visualise we keep telling DD if you insist on wiping your hands and smearing food in your hair you will have to have it washed, which you hate. In fact an all over cover with only the head forehead to chin out would be even better for mealtimes!

mrsjay Fri 21-Jun-13 09:33:13

yes knees are squishy on babies I love squishy knees grin

visualise you need a rain mate like the old ladies wear

Babies have soft kneecaps, so maybe it doesn't feel as bad as it would for adults?

Can we invent a cap for babies to wear during dinner time so they don't get food in the hair?

mrsjay Fri 21-Jun-13 09:24:16

ke heels, on her knees. I guess that's her own version of knee pads? I just sort of assumed any part of the body that you're moving around on would toughen up by itself.

crawling babies are supposed to have ^ ^ tis an inbuilt knee pad grin
