First described in the mid-1970s, infantile botulism is now the most common form of botulism in the United States. Children typically present with poor feeding, decreased suckling, loss of facial expression, constipation, and noticeable neck and peripheral weakness—a constellation of symptoms known as “floppy baby syndrome.” It occurs in children younger than 12 months of age, with a peak incidence at 3 months.
