Patient : I have a girl freind with a 10 month old girl. I have noticed since see was really small that she smiles,laughs, etc but her tongue is always hanging out of her mouth. SHe seems to be developing normally, attempting to walk, crawling like crazy, etc. But every photo I get of her, her tongue is hanging out of her mouth. Is this normal? I don't want to say anything to my freind but I am a little surprised that her pediatrician hasn't brought it up. Maybe it's nothing. What wold cause her to do this?
