Zach and Tori Roloff of LPBW Give a Health Update on 2-Year-Old Son Jackson Who Was Born with Dwarfism
Zach and Tori Roloff have recently opened up about their two-year-old son Jackson, who, just like his father, was born with Dwarfism, and how he is handling it.
During an interview with Us Weekly, the couple shared that Jackson has been doing just fine despite his condition and that he is yet to have any health struggles.
According to Zach, the baby has only had a couple of ear infections, which he said is common in people with dwarfism. He also admitted that there is a lot of potential future problems.
SO FAR EVERYTHING IS JUST FINE
It can be a little hard to find a pediatrician with so much experience with dwarfism
The proud father explained that it is still too early to tell whether Jackson will be afflicted by any of those health issues and they are just happy and grateful that he is growing up healthy and happy.
THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE JOB
Regarding professional help, Zach said that Jackson's pediatrician is the same one he had while growing up, so he knows that the baby is in pretty good hands.
Not only that, but having been Zach's pediatrician, the doctor, whose identity is yet to be revealed, is quite familiar with dwarfism which makes everything so much easier.

Zach also admitted that it can be a little hard to find a pediatrician with so much experience with dwarfism in Portland, so they are glad to have someone they can rely on.
The next step for baby Jackson will be a sleep study next month, which, according to Zach, is a standard procedure for children with dwarfism, but they don't believe any problems will come up.
DOUBLE THE HAPPINESS
