Day 2

Day 2: Babies with Down syndrome have low muscle tone (hypotonia). This means reaching milestones such as rolling over, walking, and even eating certain foods may take longer for a child with Down syndrome than a child without. Because we see her working hard every day, it is a big celebration for us when L meets new milestones. You can see in the video below that she is used to being cheered on. She claps for herself and makes sure we are watching when she does things like stand up.
