A member asked:

Is it normal that my baby isn't walking yet?

Dr. Thomas McDonagh
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: The average age for walking is 9-15 months. If your child is not walking by age 18 months, that is different enough that your doctor will recommend having an evaluation to see if there is a cause for this delay and consider beginning physical therapy to help your child reach this milestone.
A member asked:

When will my baby learn to walk?

Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
12 to 15 months: Children want to check out their world starting around 6 months, and by 9 months are able to crawl around. By 12 months, that just doesn't cut it, and they pull up on objects and cruise. We expect babies to walk between 12 and 15 months, though of course some will walk by 9 or 10 months, and some won't by 15 mo. A lot depends on the drive and gross development of the child.

When will my baby begin walking?

Dr. Bert Mandelbaum
Pediatrics 24 years experience
Usually Around Age 1: Most infants are either cruising (walking holding on to someone's hand or furniture) or walking by age 1. Though that is the norm, development varies for each child. Many children do not walk until 15 to 18 months, and some infants walk as early as 9 months. So try not to stress the timing of milestones and if you do have concerns, talk to your pediatrician.

Does your body get used to the fitness if you run every night?

Yes!: You will accommodate and will not have to work as hard so you will not get as good of a workout. I am a big advocate of hiit (high intensity interval training) and recommend you add hill work or some sprints to your workout to challenge yourself - 30 sec sprint with 90 sec jog works well x 8. This workout also enhances natural secretion of growth hormone and increases your resting metabolism.

How can I find my maximum heart rate when running?

Dr. Michael Fenster

Take your pulse: At some point during peak exercise stop and take your pulse. Count the heartbeats over 10 seconds (and multiply by 6) or 15 seconds (and multiply by 4). This will give you beats per minute, which are the units to measure heart rate.
