Baby’s Leg Bones Sound?
Doctor, my child is 6 months old at this time, but from the age of 2 months his left leg sometimes sounds when in a sling or when he is substituted for his pants, the sound reaches the waist, but my child is active, not fussy, and there are no signs of redness or feet swollen. What should I do doctor? Thank you

It seems like the sound that occurs comes from joint movement. Joints are the body parts connecting between bones. The joint consists of cartilage enveloped in capsules. In the joints there are joint fluids that contain oxygen gas, carbon dioxide and nitrogen. In the joints there can be a sudden release of these airs, which is triggered by sudden and jerky movements. The release of air will produce a sound. This is the most common cause of the appearance of "cracking" in the joints. This is nothing to worry about if it is not accompanied by other complaints, such as babies becoming fussy after they hear a sound, there are limbs that appear difficult to move, or there are joints that appear inflamed (swollen, felt hot and reddened). If accompanied by the above complaints, it is better to bring the baby in consultation with an orthopedic specialist.
Thus hopefully useful.
