The floppy baby?
Low muscle tone effects development in a variety of ways and the earlier it's identified and treated, the better the outcome. I've definitely seen kiddos with low tone in my practice and I often suspect that muscle tone may be an issue when I see a child whose mouth is constantly open and there's lots of drool happening. A child who appears like this doesn't necessarily have low tone, but its a reason to look into it.
