Answer: Hi dear, down syndrome is a chromosomal abnormality found in baby during ultrasound in first or second trimester of pregnancy. Mother with age above 30 are more prone to have babies with down syndrome. Down syndrome or chromosomal trisomy causes because of the presence of an extra chromosome. This alters babies total physical and mental development. Mostly their development is slower compared to a normal baby and they are partially physically and mentally retarded. Some common features of babies with down syndrome are ----- Decreased or poor muscle tone. Short neck, with excess skin at the back of the neck. Upward slanting eyes, often with a skin fold that comes out from the upper eyelid and covers the inner corner of the eye. Hope it helps.
