To find your total weight, you add these numbers together. 150 + 28 = 178 lbs. The bottom beam is heavier and gets you roughly to your weight, then the top beam is for adding small amounts of weight to get to your exact number. ...Read more

I blessed with a baby boy yesterday he weighted 2.7 k gs. The problem is he started crying after 1 min & he is nor crying ever since( in absorvation )?

Is he better?: They cry to oxygenate and to let you know they are hungry. If you are breast feeding, have him skin to skin on your chest- that can calm him. Also breast feed often- every 30 minutes to an hour for 1-2 minutes. Short frequent suckling brings your milk in faster and then he will be more satisfied once he is getting full from eating. ...Read more

Will hula hoop on my wii fit have same results as weighted one. Most of the hoops had warning labels about chemicals that i wasn't comfortable with. ?

No evidence . . .: Wii fit hasn't been around long enough for there to be good studies comparing its hula hoop exercises to real hula hoop. You didn't mention what chemicals made you uncomfortable. Discuss this w/your family doc. In general, i find it difficult to discourage any physical activity. So if you like wii fit, go for it! important thing is to get active daily. So congrats on making that move! ...Read more
