Sometimes back cracks when picking up my daughter

Hello, My daughter will be 15 months old on Wednesday and sometimes when we pick her up you can litterally feel her back crack. It is gross and not sure why all of a sudden it starts doing that. I have only noticed it in the last month or so. We also noticed it is not everytime we pick her up, but quite often. Just wondering if this happens to any of your babies and if you have any other solutions for us! She has an appt with the Dr in August, but wondering if it is something I should mention before our next appointment. She doesn't complain and seems oblivious to what is going on.

Thank you in advance for your help!

My son's does the same thing! I feel like it is up by his shoulders.. But he also doesn't react, so I guess it's nothing to be worried about!

This is happening to my daughter too although she is 5. It doesn't bother her and she is very active !

The cracking noise is just gas/air being released from the joints. It' probably nothing to worry about but definitely get it checked out.

All of my joints crack in 3 places. Some joints crack several times a day and some a couple of times a year, but they all crack. No medical professional has ever been able to give me a reason for it. And the strange thing, my babys joints crack too. When I was pregnant we could hear his shoulder cracking, at the time I thought it sounded like a hip but when he came out it was his shoulder that kept cracking. Most of his joints crack every few days. I'm not worried about it because I'm the same.

So I have no idea whether this is relevant to your daughter and def check with the doctor, but maybe she is just cracky like me. lol
