4. Breast milk is still the best milk for them
Breast milk is the best milk for all newborn babies. If you’re worried that you cannot breastfeed your baby due to their poor muscle tone, rest assured that you can.
However, it may take a while for them to learn how to breastfeed. Hence, it’s best to consult your doctor about it. Consulting mothers who have experience breastfeeding their baby with Down Syndrome will also be a huge help.
5. They need frequent visits to their doctors
Finally, please remember that your baby needs frequent medical appointments throughout their life.
You need to work closely with their doctors to detect problems so that you can intervene as soon as possible.
