Smilex?

Having a baby who just keeps on smiling is certainly better that staying with an adult who makes a living out of being a baby.

Smiling is more than an open mouth showing teeth.

stevegarbowski: Smiling is more than an open mouth showing teeth.


True, but people with Angelman syndrome generally have a happy expression all the time, and often excessive laughter and smiling, along with certain other behavior traits. There are a bunch of other criteria that lead to the diagnosis and as it's caused by a problem on chromosome 15 they can test for it specifically if its suspected..

The cure is actually fairly simple.

Well at least he seems happy
 
2012-11-14 12:57:54 AM
Sounds like my baby. He never stops smiling and giggling, but that may be due to his adoring brother who makes faces and dances for him all day.

You know, I can think of far worse disabilities to have.

Angelman syndrome ... is a neuro-genetic disorder characterized by intellectual and developmental disability, sleep disturbance, seizures, jerky movements (especially hand-flapping), frequent laughter or smiling, and usually a happy demeanor.

Gotta admit, if I had a rare genetic disorder that resulted in disability, it'd be nice to have one that made me happy all the time.

I have one of those!

That's certainly a nice spin on things.

Angelman kids like repetition, the shows the child likes today are going to be the shows that will be playing on your TV every day over and over again every waking moment for... well forever (mine watches Teletubbies). New shows are usually met with screaming.

Same with food, Grilled cheese or maniacal incessant screaming!

And the biting and the pinching, but it's done with a smile! You will definitely find yourself in a hospital waiting room with a scratched cornea more often than you ever thought you would.

Also, frequent vomiting and being accident prone, these guys will put anything in their mouths and there is nothing wrong with their gag reflex.

They love to throw stuff too, so don't even bother getting an LCD TV unless you wanna put it behind plexiglass.

Diapers for life! Nothing like changing a laughing smiling 16 year old!

But he will be happy, there is that.
there is that.

Does it actually make people happy all the time, or just make them look like they're happy?

Probably more the latter; kids with this condition smile/laugh even when agitated or severely stressed.

I know it's an unusual condition and more needs to be understood about it, but resorting to cold-blooded torture to get the kid to stop smiling seems awfully drastic.

This is sad. You'll have a hard time telling when he's in distress, and his smile will be rude in situations that call for somberness.
