What Baby Isn’t Fussy?

The best person to answer a question about Down syndrome is a person with Down syndrome. Leah answers this one.


Just like any baby, infants who have Down syndrome will sometimes be fussy.

The temperament of a baby with Down syndrome is not usually any different from the temperament of any other baby. There are other factors that determine if a newborn has Down syndrome. If a baby is suspected to have Down syndrome, they are given a blood test to see the number of chromosomes in the cells.

If you are concerned about your baby being fussy, speak to your doctor.
