Tender tot knees get stylish protection

Look; I really can’t get behind putting a pair of kneepads on a toddler. Aside from the hassle (and how dumb it looks) I’m of the “we all crawled on our bare knees and survived” camp of parenting. But when mom Kathryn Ames was faced with her hemophiliac crawling son’s bruised knees, she decided to come up with a solution that would be stylish enough for everyone.

Thus Bruz Wear
padded-knee pants were born. They offer protection for a crawling baby or
rough-and-tumble little kid, plus support and advocacy for the
hemophilia community with every purchase.


No need for
a medical condition to love these fun bottoms. Whether you feel your kid actually needs the
extra padding or you just want to make a fashion statement, Bruz Wear pants, and the story behind them,
are just plain cool. -Mir

  • As a mom of one, I would have found knee pads to be pointless–babies are meant to crawl on their knees! But as a mom of two now, I find it to be a smart solution. Why the change? How about a son who crawled for 6 MONTHS before learning to walk! And believe me a 14 month old who crawls wants to be right in the middle of things–going up and down cement steps, across the gravel driveway, and anywhere else he can get. His pants took a beating!
