anyone have their baby endure a broken clavicel at birth? i think my son may have. 2 days after he was born i noticed he was painful when picking him up. a few days later realized he wasnt using his left arm as much as his right. i spoke to my pediatrician over the phone and she said it sounds like one and just to bind his arm. any other ideas to help him? should i have him sleep on his back? i usually put him on his sides.Answer Question

A broken clavicle wouldn't interfere with his arm movement like you're describing. <-- sorry but that's not true.
usually kids that age have very "green" bones - like green stick they have a lot of bend. It takes a lot to break the bone. But if it is broken he may not want to move his arm at all, and he'll avoid it. I'd go have him checked out to make sure this is actually the problem. It may also he neurological. Get a second opinion!!
Babiesshould ALWAYS be put to sleep on their backs until they can turn over on their own!!! Yes, Back to sleep!! Especially if he has pain in his arm and shoulder!!
