Sometimes Morgan's hands and/or feet will turn bluish purple. Usually they are cold to the touch when they do, but not always. I am planning on bringing this up at her 6 month checkup on Tuesday, but I'm curious if anyone else has noticed this with their babies.
Do they get a tinge like she's reacting to a room being too cold or do all her extremities turn that color no matter the room temperature?
What about around her lips and her tongue?
If she has a bluish look to her skin all over her body I'd take her to the ER.
Purplish/bluish on the hands/feet for a short amount of time is normal. But if you're seeing it in high blood areas (like mouth, genitals, etc) and/or all over then that means she isn't getting enough oxygen.
