First time with bws: My daughter was 2 months... - BWS Support
Just wanted to say that your daughter is so cute! She very much resembles our son as a newborn (who is now six months old) regarding the tongue. He was diagnosed a few weeks after birth and is doing just fine. He's a sparkling little boy, strong and happy, learnt to crawl a month ago and is now standing up. We've seen lots of specialists to cover every symptom, and so far absolutely nothing has to be done except the screening every three months. The tongue has never been an issue, no problems breathing, feeding, babbling etc. I hope you will be doing as fine. And of course it feels better to have a second opinion, this condition has to be taken seriously. We met a geneticist who could confirm it. Best of luck! Regards from Stockholm, Sweden
Hello, we took our son to a cranial facial Doctor that specialized in BWS. Dr Marsh retired but he left another trained doctor at Missouri Children's hospital in the US.
A specialist will let you know if baby needs surgery or to wait. Enjoy the baby! They grow too fast and any questions, let me know.
Hi there is a support group that is "closed" on fb if you want to join it. My daughter has BWS and is 16 months now. She had TR by Dr. Marsh in Missouri a few months back over Spring Break. He has retired but I heard Dr. Gage took his place and is excellent too. Go see a genetic doctor and start the ultrasounds and afp blood draws asap.
Let me know if I can help you out!
