Treadmill Training For DS Babies

Thanks to some fellow bloggers, I came across a VERY interesting article. A study was done with 30 Down syndrome babies that found that regular exercise on a treadmill helped them walk months earlier. The average age for a DS baby to walk is 24 months and this study claims to move up the walking time by an average of 3 and a half months!
That is exciting stuff!!! I am currently looking into it further...
I found an article on the March of Dimes website. Check it out!

Totally going to try this over here. I figure, even if it doesn't work with Chase, my husband and I can get into better shape and I can wear out Ian and he'll go down for bed easier...:)
