Down syndrome baby noticeable at birth?

Is a downs syndrome baby noticeable at birth or does it take a while...
Answers:    yes you can notice certain characteristics (not abnormalities) that are associated with down syndrome at birth. some of the easiest ones to see are: upturned almond shaped eyes, thicker fungal fold (back of the neck), simean crease (line on the palm of the hand that extends all the way across the palm), sometimes a baby with DS will have a flatter bridge of their nose, and the ears may be placed lower on their head and the tops of the ears will turn forward a bit. babies with down syndrome will also exhibit a lower muscle tone. now you have to remember too...just because a child has down syndrome doesn't mean they all look the same or have the same physical characteristics...the characteristics vary from child to child and they do inherit their looks from their parents. I hope this helped you with your question!
After the baby starts to develop then you'll notice any abnormalities.
