My son is 14 months old and I've always been worried his tongue is too large for his mouth. He very rarely seems to close his mouth, and dribbles almost continuously. When he concentrates, his tongue sticks out and he sleeps with his mouth open.
I think he is perhaps a little slow with his speech, but he says a few words, and mimics a lot of sounds, so I'm not worried from that aspect. I have noticed, that he makes the 'hiss' sound for a snake, his tongue seems to be quite low down, but he makes the sound ok.
He is otherwise fit and well, and shows none of the other symptoms of BWS listed.
I'm concerned because my tongue is also too large for my mouth, and gave me a lisp and some dental problems when I was a child. I also had a red forehead as a baby, however like my son, I have had none of the other symptoms listed.
I've taken my son to my GP, and they seemed to know very little (nothing) about BWS, and seemed a little dismissive of my concerns, only that I should come back in a few months if I was still concerned about my son's speech development.
Can anyone offer and advice? It would be of great help.
