Both my daughter and I have CD. I worry greatly about
my granddaughter because she always complains that her tummy hurts. She is 6 years old. If I were you I wouldn't look for trouble. The chances that it was passed onto your granddaughter is more then the general public but still relatively low. If the baby doesn't keep up in height and weight then you can probably have it checked but I don't think it's necessary to have it checked this early. At least you and your daughter are aware that the possiblity is there and you know what to look for but just relax and enjoy your new granddaughter. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!
