'Popping' joints?

  • Well, lately i have noticed Molly's wrist will pop sometimes while she is holding on to my handand moves...
    and sometimes when i go to pick her up her back will pop too.

    At her last appt for her 4month check up, her Dr. moved her around and checked all her joint and said everything was fine, but i've been hearing this AFTER she had that appt.
    Her next appt is next month.

    Some people have said Oh,its just the baby growing, becoming more flexible, yada yada.
    Some have told me to tell her Dr. about it next appt bc it could be serious (which i will.)
    I was wondering if i should be more catious about this and call her Dr now and see if something is wrong..
    Or is this actually common in growing babies?
    Does it just happen sometimes, has any of y'alls babies had this problem?
    I'm a little worried, but she doesnt seem in pain over anything.

  • I wouldn't worry too much. It's it probably just because she is flexible. I would ask the ped again at the next appointment if her joints are still doing it. If you are sure something is wrong tho, mothers' intuition always rules so be persistent with the doctor!

  • Alicia arches her back when I pick her up and her whole back will pop sometimes. It's really freaky! I've asked the Dr. about it and they say as long as it's not all the time it's ok.
