Like any parent, you may have some questions about your baby.

Does your baby have Down Syndrome

Welcoming your baby into the world will bring you and your family joy.  Remember that your new baby is a baby first.  Delight in the fact that the child is a baby, and needs everything any new baby does.  The baby needs all the love, cuddling, soothing that you have to offer.

All babies are different and it’s important to talk with your baby’s doctor if you have any medical concerns.
