Harsh Knee Protectors

I got new Spidi RR Pro riding leathers for Christmas (thanks santey claus) and was able to wear them out for the first time yesterday. I understand that there is a break-in period on them for them to properly conform to me and my riding position, but one little issue I've experienced is that my kneecaps are SORE! It seems to stem from the rubber knee guards inside the pants pushing on my caps when I'm riding.
Being this is my first more form-fitting leathers, I'm curious if this is normal? Is it just due to the protectors and trousers not having give just yet or perhaps do my knees need a break-in period for this new stuff pushing on my caps? Any recommendations for anything that can provide perhaps a little more padding to my knees instead of nothing but that hard rubber material?
