Brief Answer:
Mixed connective tissue disorders

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns.

The first and foremost cause of multiple fractures in an infant not caused due to child abuse could be due to mixed connective tissue disorders. This includes diseases like skeletal dysplasias, Ehler Danlos syndrome etc.

Let me know if I could help further.
