Introducing Snazzy Baby Knee Pads

Introducing Snazzy Baby Knee Pads, probably, one of the best safety accessories for babies in its class we have seen to date.  Part of the reason for this is that Snazzy Baby Knee Pads are made to the very highest safety standards. Having the comfort of knowing this, parents can be confident of their child being safe while learning to crawl without any undue pressure or stress. A parent never wants to see their child in any discomfort and the Snazzy Baby Knee Pads serve as a perfect tool to serve that purpose.

If all of this isn't enough motivation to take interest in the Snazzy Baby Knee Pads, the simplicity of use and visual assurance of safety adds even greater value. Just place the knee pads cozily around your baby's knees and be confident of your child's safety while crawling.  Don't worry Mom's, the easy and simplified fastening system ensures proper fitting every time. Potential injuries such as bruising, cuts and scraped knees will now be prevented. If you are a mother, you understand all to well the level of relief from stress this provides.



An Important Part of Anatomical Development

As is commonly known, not all babies crawl before walking and of those that do, not all do so in what is considered the "standard fashion".  For infants who adopt the more commonly recognized activity of crawling making use of their hands and knees, the Snazzy Baby Knee Pads provide an added level of safety that is often times overlooked. 

According to one of our independent evaluators, "Appropriately designed knee pads for an infant during their crawling stage, assist in proper anatomical and psychological development for a baby." Infants are constantly seeking new knowledge and experience to assimilate. The Snazzy Baby Knee Pads enable an infant to fulfill a much greater portion of that need.

 

Some of the primary features are listed below;

Behavioral Analyst | Clinical Psychologist, PhD

"The Snazzy Baby Knee Pads are a foundational necessity for any family or child care facility from my own personal standpoint. An infant doesn't differentiate or classify a determination of risk or safety, they just perform an action intended.  This being such, when infants are crawling on all four appendages, injury to an infant such as scrapes, cuts, and bruises are visibly perceived.

There is a hidden or more 'unrecognized' concern for parents and any other person responsible for the care of an infant or toddler. From the physical aspect, an infant's body is developing at an exponential rate.  This includes soft tissue, joints, and other components within each appendage which if not guided properly in their development, can result in serious detrimental impact upon the child not even fully showing full evidence until late teen or adult stage in life."

"One of my strongest debates is an infant not spending enough time on the floor. This has become a prevalent concern due to the popularity of an infant using a walker.  Use of walker strongly discourages the desire to learn essential crawling behaviors.   The crawling experience is essential, especially with special needs children. The Snazzy Baby knee pads serve well in this experience to ensure development of sensory and motor systems of the body and general motor skill development."


Pediatrician, MD - General / SN Practice


"In my own personal evaluation of the knee pads, the first thing which drew my undivided attention was the versatility.  To be more specific, the ability to use the knee pads for more than just a few months with the knee pads still fitting effectively and safely.  The knee pads can be adopted for use with special needs infants as well. We tested the knee pads with several of the Autistic children being seen here in our medical facility with outstanding results."

"It is our opinion based upon our own working with the knee pads that whether an infant is crawling, beginning walking, or in special needs, the knee pads are suitable for use.  It is important to understand though, that our conclusions are based upon just a few weeks of evaluation. This report is designed to deliver our independent evaluation findings for your publication's use in your evaluation process."
