The fascinating bone structure of a newborn

Updated: Mar 8



Babies are born with around 305 bones. As they grow up, almost a third of these bones fuse together to become single bones, making up the 206-bone adult skeleton.


This is because most of the baby’s unfused bones are located in the skull, which needs to fit through the mother’s birth canal. The infused skull makes the baby’s head flexible enough to fit through the mother’s narrow pelvis.


By the age of two, the baby’s skull bones are fully fused.

Here at The Nubologists we pride ourselves on our Nub Theory knowledge and have read indisputable evidence about its reliability. However; we will take this opportunity to state we are not doctors, and while the theory is credible and reliable, the studies are based on live images exclusively looking for the genital tubercle during a scan. Still images can be less accurate. We do not guarantee the gender with our predictions.
