Baby Knee Pads

BabykneepadsMDD reader Michelle sent me a link to this article: 11 Foolish Ways We Spoil Our Kids. The article itself is OK (I too am puzzled by the large cloth drapes people put in shopping carts, lest their kids actually touch the cart) but there is one thing that I've never seen before. Baby knee pads.

Where is your baby crawling that he or she needs knee pads? Construction sites? Or maybe it's for kids who crawl so much they are rubbing sores into the skin where their kneecaps will eventually be.

I'm just surprised there aren't any fingerless Baby Crawling Gloves.

Baby Knee Pads are available here for only $27.95 Canadian. Is that a lot?
