Double Dozen Digit Baby Blessing


baby

Doctors in California have been astonished by a baby boy born with 24 perfectly formed and fully functioning fingers and toes.

Kamani Hubbard has six digits on each hand and foot, a condition commonly known as polydactylism.

Polydactylism affects around 1 in 500 babies.

Imagine what sort of pianist a 12-fingered person would be. Imagine what sort of flamenco guitarist. If else, think of their typing skills.”

The parents have not decided whether to have the extra fingers and toes removed, but doctors say the baby should keep them.
