How many bones does a child have?

I would like to know how many bones a child has.


Answer by  Melissa101010 (4405)

A child has just as many bones as an adult has they are just smaller and have not started growing yet.


Answer by  Manda (1103)

Children have the same number of bones that adults have. That is, they have 206 bones. No more and no less.


Answer by  Kris22 (90)

A baby is born with between three hundred and three hundred and fifty bones in their bones. As the child grows older, some bones grow together to form a single bone which can be seen in a baby's skull. By the time the baby reaches adulthood, he will only have two hundred and six bones.

While it is possible that some people are born missingcertain bones, the typical number you are born with 206 (two hundred and six) bones in your body. As you grow, some of the soft bones (cranium or skull) grow together and fuse, creating the hardened skull that you will need to protect your brain.
