There is research done at Mayo Clinic about the long-term effects of anesthesia on children under two. It is about the fact that the more exposures under two the increased chance of learning problems (and I believe maybe attention problems). I don't remember the specifics because the exposures Becca had needed to be done and so whatever the long term issues are we will deal at the time. I am sharing this because if you are considering laser treatment you may want to at least wait until your child is a little older to try and avoid this because laser requires multiple treatments with anesthesia. The link is on this forum somewhere because we all had a discussion about it at the time.
