5 year old hips are cracking a lot - is this a growing up thing?

My little girl's hips have started cracking a lot, i can feel it when she sits on my lap. Is this normal?
Thanks in advance...

My DS has always had clicky joints and occasionally a hip will "crack". I mentioned this to the GP, who said clicky is fine as long as it's not associated with lots of pain, or inflammation (red, hot, swollen joints). I think it can be associated with hypermobility, or slightly lax connective tissue in joints.

Thanks ClockWatchingLady that puts my mind at rest. We'll keep up with the swimming and hope that helps. Thanks again smile
