That depends...: It depends on how early your baby was. A premie's development is compared with others who are the same "corrected age" (chronologic age minus the number of weeks or months the baby was born early) until age two, when most will be "caught up" developmentally with their chronologic age-mates (babies born on the same date as they were). If a baby is only mildly preterm, he may catch up earlier. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Name game: Dr.Langdon Down worked at a home for the retarded in Britain in the 1800's.He was credited for the first published description of the syndrome that would carry his name. After the human chromosomes were identified and numbered in the 1950's, DS was studied and trisomy 21 was identified in most. Later studies show an extra piece of a specific area of the 21 is all that is needed to have DS. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Head circumference. : As long as the head circumference is tracking along the same percentile and with normal developmental progress, all that is needed is close followup with your child's PCP. Based on the information you provided, the head circumference is on the upper end of normal (~98th percentile). A family history of individuals with large heads, if present, make the head circumference stats less concerning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
There is none: You do not inherit ds from your parents in the traditional dominant or recessive fashion. During formation of the egg, only one of a pair of the 23 separate chromosomes is present so the sperm bringing 23 will reestablish the 46. Ds occurs when an extra 21 (or piece of a 21) is present in the egg after conception. This is a chromosome number change, not an inherited trait. ...Read more

14 month boy still toddles unbalanced after 5 weeks of walking, holds arms near shoulder level; very tall off charts. Is that normal?
Evaluate Milestones: Your 14 mos old "walks unbalanced"; is "very tall off charts". Making an assessment of his development based on his walking alone is inadequate. A complete evaluation of his milestones is crucial in diagnosing developmental delay vs. a late bloomer. His growth history can elucidate many medical conditions. See your pediatrician soon, early intervention is key if your son is showing some delays. ...Read more
