that is my main questioning too. To me doctors said, that the child should begin at 2 years....they said it is the treat of general anestesia, but on the other hand i have heard that there is a corelation between early treatment and success.In the You tube, i found some videos, when they started wery eraly, at 4 months....My little boy is 10 days old now, and he has also PWS over half of his left side of the face. I think face is the most delicate part of the body to live with this....and i will do what i can, even i would risk a bit, if not too much, if it is really worth to begin early....but I also do not have the answer to that question....i am asking people the same as You in your post....
