When will my baby learn to climb stairs?

When will my baby learn to climb stairs?

Around 1 year: Between 9 and 12 months, babies learn to crawl. By 12 months, most are starting to pull up and cruise on objects, and many are walking. Shortly thereafter they start to try to climb things.

My almost 16 month baby doenst climb unless is the stairs. Should i be worried ?

No, not necessarily: Most babies will start trying to climb stairs soon after learning how to walk. The range of independent walking can be between 9-18 months.

Checkup : You should be able to join swimming, but given your age and without knowing your past medical history, might be a good idea to get that annual checkup first to make sure your health is ok. Knee pain while climbing stairs usually indicates patellofemoral syndrome. It can be treated with gentle quad strengthening exercises, such as a leg press in a gym or squats at home with light weights. ...Read more

What could cause pain in my knee when crouching or climbing the stairs?

Cartilage - meniscus: Crouching and climbing increase the load across the patellofemoral joint under the knee cap and cartilage damage in the area of the patella and trochlear groove would cause pain when crouching or climbing stairs. A meniscal tear would also likely be more symptomatic with crouching or climbing stairs. Orthopaedic evaluation is indicated. ...Read more

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome has pain in front of the knee cap, with squats and when walking up stairs. PT to strengthen the quadricep muscle is required +/- knee brace. Short-term use NSAIDs (like Aleve) with meals. ...Read more
