  • if its not bugging him than i doubt he even notices it. but you could just keep him in pants while he is crawling, or try to keep him on a sheet or blanket that is thrown over your carpet. we kept my daughter on a blanket b/c we had a throw rug that just wasn't comfy to sit on as an adult non the less crawl around on as a baby (at least that was our thought on it) and by the time she actually started trying to get off the blanket she was a little better at the not dragging her knees or legs so the rug didn't bother her by then.

  • Emi isn't crawling yet but she has Baby Legs. If you go to Etsy, do a search for Knotty Baby Wear. They're awesome.

  • my DD just figured out how to crawl so that she doesnt get rug burn haha. it never seemed to bother her. i tried putting pants on her so she wouldn't get rug burn, but she kept "pulling" them off. i wouldnt worry too much about it if he doesn't seem bothered by it.
