This syndrome is seen 1 per 13700 births
the glossoptois really stands out and the first thing that came to mind was...Down's syndrome child ( doesn't look like, hypothyroid child )
....but, since u mentioned 1 per 13,700, i go 4 'Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome'
Though after saying just the macroglossia, flat nasal bridge my mind also crossed over Down's syndrome......but that's not for sure after seeing the prevalence.....
Down syndrome. Because he has epicanthal fold, macroglossy and also a flat facies
Well in down syndrome you can see :
Signs and symptoms :
Congenital heart disease
The newborn has small round skull (brachycephalism) with flattened occiput and large fontanels which will close late. The face is round, flat facial profile is due to their bone hypoplasia of the nose and the forehead is bulging
And a few more, cant remember, but for BWS (beckwith widemann syndrome) we have :
Large birth weight and length (I can say here we can see if we look at his superior member )
Hypoglycemia in the newborn period (we cant see here )
Macroglossia (we can see this sign on this picture)
Nevas Flammeus (alias named "stork bite" as neo_star said)
Dx : beckwith widemann syndrome
Beckwith wiedemann syndrome.

Correct diagnosis :
This is my beautiful baby boy and im not sure how he made it on this site but im glad to see how interested you are in learning his diagnosis. He was genetically diagnoised with Beckwith-Weidemann syndrome. He had his tongue reduction at age 6 months, he had a hernia repair at 18 months as well as a hypospadius correction. He is very smart and gets monitored closely. He'll be 2 next week and has been doing excellent with all exams.
