Thread: confused

    When my son was born, he did not have the full finger nails on both of his index fingers. Will these grow in? Is it something I did while pregnant that caused this? I tried to eat healthy but I was so sick while pregnant with him. There was little I could keep down until I was almost 6 months along.

    Dear JeeniferA,

    Congratulations on your son.

    This is very unlikely to be caused by something you did not eat/ did eat in pregnancy. Please do not worry/ feel guilty about that.

    Some babies are born with short nails which then grow over the first year of life. This does not cause any problems and is normal for these babies. Is it just that your son has very short finger nails on his index fingers rather than no nails?

    Best wishes,
