In brief: Newborn period

(or sooner - some babies can have abnormal findings detected on prenatal ultrasounds.
) however, classically, the diagnosis is made in the newborn period due to low muscle tone, poor feeding and poor weight gain. The overeating characteristic of prader-willi begins in the toddler or preschool years.
