My 8 month old is crawling......

Carmela is crawling like crazy, which is wonderful, but her poor little knees are all red & brushburned. Any suggestions?

  • You can buy knee pads. I have seen them at babiesrus so maybe walmart and target has them too for cheaper.

  • GREAT QUESTION! MY DAUGHTER IS THE SAME AGE AND HER LITTLE KNEES ARE REALLY RED. IF WE PUT HER IN ANYTHING THAT COVERS HER LEGS, SHE BECOMES UPSET AND STOPS CRAWLING.

  • You can put baby leg warmers on her or you can just let them get roughed up. It's like playing guitar in my opinion. It hurts your fingers at first but once your fingers get a bit calloused it's smooth sailing.
