First smile, first steps, first word: Parents eagerly await their babies’ milestones and celebrate each one. My family is no different. We celebrated recently when my youngest son, Lewis, got his first tooth.
The celebration was sweeter because, like most of Lewis’s milestones, we’ve had to wait longer for it.
Lewis has Down syndrome. Among the many surprising facts we have learned since his birth is that teething is often delayed in babies with Down syndrome. Lewis’s first tooth didn’t come in until he was 14 months old, eight months later than his older siblings.
