Could this be a sign of Down Syndrome??

My wife and I have a 5 month old daughter who has 2 bowed-out pinkies on her hand. Some nurses at my wife's work say that this could be a sign of Down Syndrome. Could it be possible?? The rest of my daughter seems to be physically fine. She was one month premature but weighed 6 lbs, 6 oz. She had to have help with her breathing with a respirator for 2 weeks but was given a clean bill of health after that and came home. She's at a stage where she doesn't sleep a whole lot and she seems to have some stomach pains (colic?) but most of the time she seems very happy and content. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

thanks everyone!
