Hello Darlene,
- Most of the baby bones are comprised of cartilage scaffold( soft mould)which later gets stronger by deposition of calcium and bone forming cells.
- There are growing centers at each ends of the bone called growth plates. These plates keep depositing bone cells and calcium and other minerals.
- They grow longitudinally and horizontally as well. The Bones get stronger with daily activities and stresses borne by them.
-This transformation from cartilage to mature bone is monitored by various parameters like:
-Diet
-exposure to sunlight for Vitamin D
-hormone- growth hormone, thyroid and parathyroid hormones etc
-genetic make up
-calcium and phosphorous levels in the body.
-presence of any systemic disease.

Hope that solved your doubt.

how does the musculoskeletal system change from birth to adulthood and what are the steps the system goes through from childhood to adulthood to reach 206 bones. I know that when we are born the bones are made of soft flexible cartilaginous tissue and as we get older the bones fuse together to make us have the 206 bones

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
