Baby knee guards! Wise or wacky?

Imagine spending months at a time crawling on rough surfaces. Your soft skin becoming scarred and tough.  That’s what babies have had to put up with... until now.

More moms are using baby knee guards to protect their baby’s sensitive skin. There are several products designed to prevent scratches, scrapes and callouses on your child, up to the age of four!

Even celebrity mom Victoria Beckham is Tweeting about it:

@victoriabeckham Amazing! baby knee pads for when babies start crawling!! X

Some people agree that this kind of protection is ingenious, but others are shaking their heads, and suggesting that it’s overprotective madness: Knees are supposed to be padding enough!

You can order them online, from stores like One Step Ahead.

What do you think? Would you use baby knee guards for your child?
