Apologies for long post....
My DS has had a "clicky knee" since he was newborn which was noticed by the MCHN but noted as common in newborns.
He is now 9 months and I feel like all joints are now very clicky.
I can feel him crick and crack when I pick him up or move him in any way.
He doesn't seem to be bothered by it. I should note that both DH and I are 'double jointed' so not sure if he's just like us or if this is something else...
I called the MCHN to get an appointment to have her check him over just to see if this is in the realm of normal or if I should get him checked out by a Dr.
She would not make me an appointment, said she could not make such an assessment and that I should go to GP if I am concerned.
I took him to our GP today, he really wasn't interested in listening to me at all.
He kept talking about dislocation of hips being the only concern in babies and checked DS hips which were fine.
I kept telling him that I am not concerned about his hips, that it is the knees, elbows, shoulders, back, ribs that I feel clicking.
He didn't even check any of these, just said "don't worry about that, there is nothing we can do about that anyway. Are you a first time mum? It's ok you're just a little over anxious because he's your first!"
I would be happy to accept this assessment if he had even moved his legs and arms to check his joints, but he didn't.
I am now feeling very frustrated and am looking into taking him to a Paediatric Physio just to get him looked at properly before accepting that this is normal.
Have any of you found this with your bubs at this age? Is clicking joints in 9 month olds common and normal?
