How to get smooth knees?

Now that my DD is crawling, her knees are so red and rough like she's got carpet burn. What can I do to keep them smooth? I put lotion on them, but it doesn't seem to help.

  • For now its better to just leave them alone. Its like building callouses on your feet - they help protect from the impact of walking.

    When she starts walking, her skin will smooth out again.

  • You should use Cetaphyl cream make sure you buy the cream not the lotion, it works wonders, you'll notice a difference the next day at least i did. It's kind of expensive but it's worth it and i know i got a coupon for it not too long ago so maybe you should look for the coupon first
