Hey everyone this may sound stupid but I heard yesterday that babies do not have knee caps right away is this true????? If this is true and you have a site that gives proof please let me know. Sorry if I sound dumb but I wanted to know because it really struck my curiousity
NO DRAMA PLEASE
I don't even know lol
good question, im sad to say i dont know the answer for sure, and i haev a 6 month old.....i touch her knees all the time, i suppose my guess is yes..lol
I don't have a site...I can look for one though in a minute. However, at birth they do not have knee caps! I know that :) because I remember asking my pedi about it.
Newborns do have kneecaps. Kneecaps form about the fourth month of fetal life. However, they don
Quoting Kayla~Phillip's momma:
Here you go OP!
they do have them, but they dont get "boney" until like...3 yrs I think??
This says they do, but in my oppenion they don't untill it's considered a bone. but either way it's a yes and no answer
Upon birth, a baby will not have a conventional knee cap, but a growth formed of cartilage. In human females this turns to a normal bone knee cap by the age of 3, in males the age of 5.
