Q.

Baby' s Abnormal Ribs

My baby has got big ribs, when she is lying on her back and i am rubbing her i can just feel how sharp her ribs are. I am so worried that her ribs can grow abnormal.She fell from a sofa when she was 5 weeks old, can this be the cause for abnormality in her ribs.

Is there anything that can prevent it from becoming like a front hunch, the more she grows.

It is important to find out for certain whether your baby's ribs are normal or not. I do not think that the fall when she was 5 weeks old could be the cause of all her ribs being big and having an unusual feel. Please ask your doctor to see your baby.
