Number of Bones in a Baby

How many bones are there in a baby?

More than 300.

A human baby is born with more than 300 bones, most of which are cartilaginous. During human growth and development some of these bones fuse together. Some examples of adult human bones formed by the fusion of infant bones are the sacrum and the coccyx found in the vertebral column, as well as the bones in the skull.
