When will my baby learn to climb stairs?

When will my baby learn to climb stairs?

Once mobile: Children are natural explorers and are fast. If you have stairs gate them off to prevent your child from climbing when you are not watching and with him. Most children can climb up pretty easily but have trouble descending. They need constant supervision to avoid a fall. Anytime after a child learns to walk they may try.....Some before.

When can kids ride in the car facing forward?

When can kids ride in the car facing forward?

Rear view until 2: The AAP recently adopted the 'rear view until 2' standard for carseats. State laws may be more lax. I encourage families to strive for optimal not acceptable safety standards. Studies show the longer a child rides rearward, the better the chance of survival in a crash. In my mind, 2 years is a minimum standard, 4 would be better, although finding a rear-facing seat for older kids is a challenge. ...Read more

Curing slight runner's knee?
I walk daily for 2.5 miles, have a BMI of 21.8, do quad sets, push ups and elevate my knee when sleeping using pillow.

You would do "knee squeezes" as isometrics and also terminal knee extensions as well as leg lifts. Then you would progress to one legged squats to give yourself good neuromuscular control. ...Read more

30,M.BMI22Chronic knee pain1yr Sitting on chair and bending knees increases while mild squats reduces painI sit long duration to studyMRI- NAD.Reason?

Knee pain : It sounds like you have patellofemoral syndrome given the knee pain but it could be osteoarthritis being that it is involving both of your knees.

Right lower back stuck after bathroom slip on 02 jun 2016, unable to bend forward rest three side ok, can't sit or bend without putting hand support.

Can you walk without pain, can you turn/rotate the body side to side without moving the feet? Do you have pain radiating to the pelvis or the lower extremities?You probably injured your spine, you need an orthopedic surgeon/ MRI ...Read more
