Do walkers and jumpers help my baby learn to walk?

Do walkers and jumpers help my baby learn to walk?

No: Walkers and jumpers do not help a baby learn to walk. Walkers and jumpers are ok to use under adult supervision, and for less than 30-60 minutes at one time. They are not for keeping a toddler in, without supervision. Dangers include crashing into furniture corners, flipping over, falling down stairs, and sliding through the seat (possibly getting tangled up and possibly getting choked).

Can walking be good exercise?

Can walking be good exercise?

The best!: Walking is the exercise! fish swim, birds fly, land-based mammals walk. Except for last 50 years, we spent most of our time standing/walking. Is walking 30 min then sitting all day good exercise? It beats 24 hours of just sitting. (see "23.5 hours" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auains6higo ) even better? Sit fewer than 3 hours a day & add 2+ good years to your life. http://tinyurl.com/6q69wtl.

When will my baby begin walking?

By 16 months: Some babies are comfortable crawling for months and some skip crawling to go straight to walking. It is normal for babies to take up to 16 months to learn to walk. If still not walking then, s/he should be evaluated for motor delay. Remember to give baby plenty of opportunities for safe movement -- too much carrying or bringing things over to your baby can cause delay too.

Ready: He will walk when he is ready and generally around the same time that parents and siblings did. Various devices like jumping gyms and devices that encourage climbing help strengthen his leg muscles and may encourage him to be more upright but he will walk when it is time for him. All the best.

How long does it take to walk a 5k?

How long does it take to walk a 5k?

On How Many Legs???: Depends on your age,conditioning and how much you want to exert yourself. But let's say you are younger than 45 and just want to walk at the average 5 feet per second. So that times 60 seconds per minute then times 60 minutes per hour or18,000 feet per hour and there's 5,280 feet in a mile so that's 3.4 miles an hour,which is 5.5K per hour (3.4X1.6). So, it would take 5/5.5=0.9 hour, or 54 minutes

Can you walk on ttedmill afyer foood?

Can you walk on ttedmill afyer foood?

You can: And in fact a gentle walk may aid in digestion(at least motility wise) ... there have actually been studies in this regards. But you have to listen to your body. If you are going to try to jog or run, it may predispose you to nausea, heartburn, and stomach pains/cramps. If that's the case, just slow things down or stop all together.
