Klinefelter Syndrome?

Or is he XXY? There IS a difference!

A Parent's View

Boys are made of special things and sometimes some Xtra special things!

Allow me to begin by telling you that many doctors and researchers do not refer to Klinefelter Syndrome when referring to a child because a child can not and does not have the symptoms of what Harry Klinefelter researched and not all babies and boys will go on to develop the symptoms associated with Klinefelters Syndrome and until they do, they do not have a syndrome. There is the blessing of the early diagnosis. SO much can be changed but just having that advantage. Use it to yours!!

So you have just been told that your baby has an extraX.......There is so much more to know than just that! Please take the time to educate yourself. The unknown is a scary place to be and usually the FACTS are not as bad as they first may seem. Please read on!

I was in your shoes just a short time ago when I was told that my two month old baby had this disorder. I was terrified....but I also love my child with all of my heart so I took the time to learn. I will share with you what I felt, heard, read and learned and hopefully provide you with something I wished I had had available to me the day I was told.
