    My daughter was 3 months old before the doctors found that she had Down Syndrome. She saw several different doctors for heart related problems but they didn't find it until I took her to her three month check up and they saw that she wasn't doing the things that 3 month olds normally do. Then they ran the test to check for Down Syndrome and it came back positive.
