    An adult human has 206 bones. As compared to this a new born baby has about 270 bones. A baby is born with cartilage between some bones. This gives babies more flexible body structure, allows faster growth. As the baby grows, some groups of bones fuse together to form a single bone. This reduces the count of number of bones. However it must be noted that reduction in number of bone does not mean reduction in any part of the skeletal system.
