Climbing Tree Stands
It is for the rock!!: Seriously, I would not recommend it for an adult with ankle or wrist problems, extremity weakness, or general balance or health challenges. If one walks or climbs on challenging and uneven terrain, it is essential that he or she be in good health and excellent condition. Physiatrists and sports or trauma medicine doctors can say more, so I will share this with them. Thanks for asking. @drpam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not likely: Having busy, active babies is a great thing. Depending on the age of the child and how she was delivered, the pains are not likely to be from the climbing or kicking. Stress of having an infant along with routine daily life can cause pain from acid reflux or stomach irritation. Healing the belly after delivery can cause discomfort for a little while as well. Talk to your doctor about it. ...Read more
How to deal with baby 10m who insist to climb the coach when I say no firmly he still repeat the same action how to change his behavoir? How raise obey
When you say: In a low, firm, calm voice, remove him from the couch from behind. Take him to a play area & engage him in a different activity. Spend an afternoon redirecting him till he " gets it."

Please elaborate on what is considered shortness ofbreath? E.g if I walk for 20minutes and then climb 5 flights of stairs is it "ok" to feel breathless
Depends: On your baseline fitness level. If this is unusual activity for you, then it is perfectly natural to feel breathless after this much activity.

Hope this helps! ...Read more
