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. I always caution parents to start with the "mobile childproofing" around 7 to 9 months to avoid the "early walkers" and the accidents that happen when parents didn't know their children were that mobile. ...Read more

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

Why is it better for babies to learn to walk without shoes?

Why is it better for babies to learn to walk without shoes?

Protect if needed: Years ago parents were pushed into buying clunky, heavy shoes for a kid to learn to walk but we no now most will do better without. They often had more falls if they learned with shoes. Today we understand the feet firm up on their own & only need coverage for the environment they are in. Bare feet or rubberized socks are great indoors & simple flexible foot coverings are ok for outside. ...Read more

Is it good for babies when they are first learning to walk to wear shoes?

Is it good for babies when they are first learning to walk to wear shoes?

Depends...: For learning to walk around the house it is best for a baby to be barefoot. The sensitivity of the bottom of the foot is important for balance. Once the baby is walking, it will be easier to transition to shoes. If the child is outside and mobile (walking or crawling) shoes are important for protection. ...Read more

Has sudden infant death syndrome in survivors been linked to learning disabilities ?

Has sudden infant death syndrome in survivors been linked to learning disabilities ?

SIDS: I would say this is an alte, or an apparent life threatening event vs. Surviving sids. It is reasonable to say if your brain was without oxygen for a significant amount of time than it is possible that later there could be a ld. It could be hard to prove on a case by case basis the exact cause of a ld. ...Read more

Can head CT scans in an infant cause radiation and learning disabilities?

Can head CT scans in an infant cause radiation and learning disabilities?

Not exactly: A ct is by definition 'radiation', since it is a series of xrays computer reconstructed as sliced pictures of body tissues. It doesn't cause radiation but exposes the person to radiation. Modern ones may expose one to an amount similar to a transcontinental flight over the usa. Repeat exposure is a current topic of concern, but no specific learning disorder has been identified as connected to this. ...Read more

Side effects of CT scan for preemie infant include radiation and learning disabilities?

Side effects of CT scan for preemie infant include radiation and learning disabilities?

Doubt connection: Any learning disabilities suffered by a premi that survives most likely represent factors that precipitated premature delivery & the need for resuscitation & intensive care, not the ct scan. Last year my patient, "littlest angel" (14oz @ birth) graduated from the honors program at baylor in 3 yrs.It didn't slow her down. She never got real tall but she is quite a survivor. ...Read more
