Newborn and Infant Care
Bones might have fused too early
My grandson is 1 week old. My daughter was told that his bones might have fused too early. What exactly does that mean?
In order to answer this question I need to know which bones have possibly fused. The bone(s) involved would lead me to different possible causes.
