Home / What is Hypotonia?
Hypotonia, also called floppy infant syndrome or infantile hypotonia, is a condition of decreased muscle tone. Hypotonia is usually diagnosed within the first few months of life. An infant with hypotonia exhibits a floppy quality or "rag doll" feeling when he or she is held.
Infants may lag behind in acquiring certain fine and gross motor developmental milestones that enable a baby to hold his or her head up when placed on the stomach, balance themselves or get into a sitting position and remain seated without falling over.
Some children with hypotonia may have trouble feeding, if they are unable to suck or chew for long periods.
