I am afraid that you are going to have to take your baby's injury very seriously. Babies just do not come home from creche with a broken elbow. Either she fell or was picked up so forcefully by her arm that she has developed this fracture.She is too young to be walking yet,so how did she or how could she have fallen? It is very likely that she was picked up so roughly and forcibly by her arm that it was fractured. You will have to take her out of the creche immediately. Take her to your paediatrician for a full examination as she may have other injuries as well. You and/or the paediatrician will need to contact social services about this. It is very likely that your will have to lay a charge of child abuse against the creche.Your baby was due to start crawling soon. Fortunately this fracture should heal quite quickly over the next 3 weeks or so. So she will not be much delayed if at all. She is only due to walk at around 13 months so there is no concern about this now. You have enough to worry about already.<br>Her fracture must be treated by an orthopaedic specialist preferably a paediatric orthopaedic specialist
