Baby's joints cracking

My 16mo DD joints have been cracking a lot for about a week. Everything from picking her up, too helping her up by her arms, and lifting her feet to put a diaper underneth her makes her Joints crack. It's mostly her shoulders, wrists, hips and ankles, but her back and knees have cracked a few times too. What could be causing this? Growth? Or is it a problem? She doesn't care at all when it happens. I know her shoulders used to crack until she was about 4mo and the Ped checked it out and said if it didn't bother her not to worry about it. But now it's happening a lot more often, almost everytime I pick her up. Anyone have any info

Re: Baby's joints cracking

My 2 month old's shoulders pop all the time. Every time she moves them. I was planning on asking the doc at her well baby next week.

You say yours did this too and outgrew it? Sorry I don't have any advice, as I don't recall my DS every having this. But I just saw the topic and wanted to ask more details.

I noticed on my DD's initial exam after birth, the paperwork showed a + "click" in the shoulder and hip. Is click the same thing? I know they said her hips were fine (she was transverse in utero for 36 weeks and her legs were really "froggy") and not dislocated.

I'd appreciate any advice too!

Re: Baby's joints cracking

Yes she did crack, or click her shoulders until she was about 4mo. The Ped said it was nothing to worry about if it didn't seem to bother her.

Now it's almost every joint. It started about a week ago. She doesn't care at all, but it makes me cringe, lol.
