Knee pads? For a baby?? Seriously??? Yes, believe it or not folks, it's a thing! And you don't have to be a super anxious over-protective mama bear to get on board. Say good-bye to skinned or rug-burned little knees and say hello to a cute new accessory and peace of mind! Lil' Melon Baby Knee Pads come in 10 designs in 2 sizes (8-16 months and 13-36 months), and they even have gift sets (what a unique 1st birthday present!!).
As my loyal readers will know, my lil' one just turned 7 months and is recently on the move. He's not properly crawling yet (i.e. not up on hands and knees) but is going army style like a snake. We have all hardwood floors in our apartment, so of course I was starting to worry about his poor little knees dragging along on the floor. And his knees get all red and irritated on the carpet at our favorite play gym. Ouch! So, I was really excited to try Lil Melon's knee pads! We got the elephant design, of course, since it's Kenzo's mascot.
Gotta love their slogan: Prevent the bruisin' before they start cruisin'!
There are no straps, you just pull them on and up like socks. The back has air vents, and the knee pad itself isn't hard - it's very thick but soft and pliable. The pad also has little silicone beads in the design to help give baby traction on slick floors (like ours).
Here's Kenzo giving his new knee pads a test run! Once they were on, he didn't seem to notice they were there and he was on the move! They stayed in place, despite his wonky crawling techniques. But when it was time to take a break from crawling, he soon discovered something new and exciting to play with...
And chew on!!!
Anyway, I'm very excited to have these CUTE knee pads to get him through crawling and also when he's teeter tottering around the playground in a few months! Now if I just got him a helmet and wrist guards and elbow pads we'll be all set! HA! Forget it, just send me a zorb ^_^
