Thank you for the question.
There is often a sound or sensation of cracking around a baby's knee when moved often is not dangerous. This condition can occur naturally due to friction between the bones and other supporting tissues in the joints. The presence of air bubbles in the purging joint lubricating fluid can also cause this complaint. Provided that your baby can grow and develop as it should, does not appear swollen or painful around his knees, and also do not appear other annoying complaints, often this condition is not dangerous.
You should be vigilant if the baby's knee sounds like swelling, redness, or difficulty in movement. If you find this condition in your baby, you can see it directly to the doctor or pediatrician, worrying that his complaints indicate tissue damage in his knee, for example due to injury, inflammatory disorders, benign or malignant tumors, infections, and various other factors.
In the meantime, you are advised not to over-pressure, especially carelessly kneading your baby's knee. Just make sure he doesn't get a knee injury, give him healthy, nutritionally rich milk and MPASI, and regularly control his growth and development to the nearest health facility every month.
Hope this helps ...
