Are small baby ears common in babies without chromosonal disorders or do they always appear as a symptom for a larger problem?


Posted by atlantic001

My baby daughter has small ears.  When she was born a karyotype test was administered due to concerns of Down Syndrome.  30 cells were examined and she passed the test.  According to the lab, the test ruled out 10% mosaicism with 95% certainty.  She seems to be functioning normally, meeting all of the milestones (heading head up, tracking with her eyes, and smiling) and there are no other signs of disorder.  I have noticed that her ears are smaller than those of other babies.  My wife and her sister both have small ears.  She claims it runs in her family.
