Weird question about knuckles...

I just noticed this the other day. My 7 month olds knuckles are like indentations. Mine stick out. Are all babies knuckles indented ? They are just little holes on her hands.

  • Does she have pudgy hands? That's probably it....

  • forthe most part ... her joints are not fully formed yet. Kids don't even get kneecaps till they are like 3.

  • LOL She must have chubby hands like my kids! Kaden was a HUGE baby and Colin was nearly as big. Both of them had rolls on rolls and little clefts in their knuckles. It's cute... don't be worried : )

  • their bones and joints aren't developed until they start to become toddlers, especially their knees because they crawl on them first. my babies hands are like that, plus he's pudgy, i love it. cute as can be
