Baby humans have approximately three hundred bones in their little bodies, along with some extra pockets of cartilage. However, as time passes, these three hundred bones fuse with each other and the cartilage to form a total of 206 bones. Thus an adult human body will typically have 206 bones.

Babies' bones are made up mostly of cartilage. This cartilage is very soft and flexible. This explains why babies are so flexible- sometimes they can even chew their toes without any obvious discomfort. Later as the child slowly starts developing the cartilage will eventually turn in to calcium and will no longer be as flexible as before. This happens only with the help of calcium- this is probably why growing children need plenty of calcium in their diets or calcium supplements to facilitate the development of strong bones and teeth.
