I, personally, would stick to the opinion of the doctor who has his scans, knows his history and isn’t just there to “see” him / read his other notes. I think that whomever told you that he will have all of these issues without having the medical history on him was totally in the wrong.

It sounds like he is  perfectly healthy baby. Can you make an appt to go back to the original doc (neuro) and get his opinion on his progress thus far?

One of my best friends had a baby just shy of a year ago with Downs. They were told he would be this and that, he wouldn’t do certain things, he wouldn’t talk, he would walk late, all of the negative things. Another doctor was really supportive and sent them to special therapy groups, tracks his progress and all that. The little guy is crawling, has said “mum” at a year old and has done 95% of the things that they said he COULDN’T / wouldn’t do at his age, or ever.

Kids are phenomenal little creatures. I bet your little guy will prove that woman wrong a hundred times over. Lots of babies don’t like to roll, HATE it, in fact. I don’t think the things you have described him donig/not doing are abnormal or an indicator of his future development at all. I am not a doctor, but I honestly think your little guy will be just fine. If it makes you feel better maybe you can make another appt with your neuro guy or get another opinion from another neuro for peace of mind.

Keep us updated, he sounds like a perfect little man to me! 🙂

You said it yourself that the timeline didn’t work for your previous children. Some kids are quicker to do things than others and it isn’t wrong but its just how the timing worked for them. My brother wouldn’t talk so doctors assumed something was wrong with him. Our family all learned some sign language so we could communicate with him. In the end he was fine, I think we was like three before he ever did talk. You could go to a third Dr. to see what they say since the other two are basically opposite. I would beieve the original Dr more since he was there for everything so far and had all the information.

Worrying won’t fix anything. Just be the best mother you can to him and provide him with the care that you think is necessary for him to live a happy life. I wish your son the best and hope that he is not permanently affected.

Maybe a third opinion would help clarify things for you. What about trying for a specialist children’s hospital?
