Day 227 - Pants for Crawling

Today's first time parenting tip - Dress your baby in pants when they begin to crawl.

Unless you're a fan of rugburn, it's a good idea to dress your baby in pants when he's crawling around everywhere. Whether it's carpet or hard wood floors or linoleum, if your baby is crawling on bare skin his knees are probably going to get all red, and if he's really going to town, rugburned.

If you're worried about him overheating, make sure its a light cotton sweatpant. Or, they do make cute little windpants for babies, a lot like the ones you'd wear working out or running.

If he does get a rug burn, treat it like you would a first degree burn. Cool water, and lightly dress it to protect it while letting it breathe.

Or better yet, how about getting crawling pants for crawling babies. I bought a couple for my son online and they've worked great. They are lightly padded with soft, breathable fabrics.
