As an almost 12 pound baby who suffered a brachioplexus nerve injury and lifelong Erbs Palsy from shoulder dystocia, it sounds weird but I am SO glad his arm broke! Sorry if that sounds just odd to say, BTW, I mean it with the BEST of intentions!
As my midwife said when he son's clavicle broke during dystocia (she heard the crack), she knew it was okay then and he was going to be safe. No long-term effects after the break heals. Good luck!
Congrats on your big, healthy boy!
