Cute non-skid pants give crawlers a leg up

Non-skid pants for crawling babiesBefore we had babies, we decided that what our house needed was stained concrete floors. Slippery-as-heck concrete floors, as we found out after we had babies, are not exactly the easiest place for them to learn to crawl. We ended up investing in a lot of rugs.

So I find the idea behind these non-skid play pants totally ingenious.

The brainchildren of mom-to-three Amy Shoaff of Dot Dot Couture, these 100% cotton non-skid play pants are pants with traction. Adorable
traction. Check out the designs on the knees: retro cars (the cutest one), giraffes,
hearts, dragons. Each design is made up entirely of soft rubber dots
that help babies’ knees grip the floor, no matter how slippery.

$32 pants are super-soft, and they even have bigger kids’ sizes, too, up to
6T. Who knows, maybe your child is like my 3-year-old, and likes to
crawl-race her baby brother. -Lexi

    Cute idea! And yes, Lexi, my 3 yr old likes to crawl around with his baby brother, too!

    Very cute, but rather unnecessary, really. Babies have been learning to crawl, bumshuffle, and otherwise move around quite happily for thousands of years.

      That’s true. Babies have been learning to crawl forever, but making them more comfortable and protecting them is always a goal for moms. I have hardwood floors throughout my house and I cannot tell you the number of times my now 2 year old slipped while crawling and face-planted. Now I have a 5 month old and to avoid this I came online looking for just such pants and was pleasantly surprised to actually find them. Great idea!

    We couldn’t agree more Hineata. For those moms who have told us their little crawlers have gone through the knees on their pants we thought it was smart. Otherwise…mostly they’re just really cute. (Did you see the dragon?)
