Review: Tee-Knees™

2009 October 14

Tee Knees

After crawling backwards for more than one month, Baby V finally started crawling forward two weeks ago, at 7 months 1 week old. It is amazing how fast he crawls all over the place once he has mastered the technique. In fact, so fast that he fell from our mattress to the floor, flat on his face. Ever since, he is only allowed to crawl freely on the floor or playpen.


Baby V received a pair of large Tee-Knees™ as a present – perfect timing! (Available at The First Few Years, Paragon, Singapore) (listed price: S$29.90) Although size Large is designed for children aged 12 to 36 months, it fits his thunder thighs well and he looks as if he is going to roller-blade.

It is very easy to put Tee-Knees™ onto Baby V. I like the softness of the Neoprene pads and Spandex leg bands, which protect his knees while he cheerfully explores his bedroom.

Without Tee-Knees™, his knees would be burning red and his skin almost peeling after much crawling. The Tee-Knees™ do slide down a little sometimes.


The drawstring pouch is a great idea as it ensures that the Tee-Knees™ stay as a pair, either at home or in the diaper bag.

Pros:
  • Soft and comfortable material
  • Easy to clean (machine-washable)
  • Drawstring pouch keeps Tee-Knees™ as a pair
Cons:
  • Fabric does not seem breathable

    Question from a reader:
    Hi! I just read your helpful review. When you say the fabric is not breathable, does this mean your child had sweaty knees? Would you advise against buying a pair of tee-knees? Or they should only be worn for a limited amount of time. Thank you!

    My reply:
    I am not certain if the padding that covers the knees is breathable, but it does not seem to be.

    Baby V wears it for a stretch of about 30 minutes during his floor time and has not experienced sweaty knees so far. (Our weather is hot and humid in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.)

    When he is playing on his Gymini or other soft surfaces, I will remove the knee pads.

    I would say Tee-Knees™ are great for an actively-crawling baby, worn for a limited amount of time at a stretch.

    Hi there..I have purchased a regular size pair of Tee-Knees..no sweat..you know they are made of bathing suit spandex…which is the band around the leg..the neoprene pad..is not a problem…because it is rubberized..does not mean sweat..as there is a nylon material that covers it..My little Amber…just loves these..and cruises across the floor with no problems..a God send with hardwood and marble and tile.

    Thank you very much for the helpful information, Casey.
    Yes, Tee-Knees™ are very useful on hard ground.
    Enjoy mummyhood to little Amber! :)
