A lot lately, Evie's hands and feet will turn a very deep purple (not always at the same time). I happens sometimes when I hold her while I'm standing, or when she's playing with her feet while lying on her back (her feet) in the bath her hands will turn purple (usually the one on the arm that I'm holding her upright with). But lately the deepness of the color and the time that it will stay white when I press on it, it just seems to be getting more severe.
It doesn't seem to bother her at all and they aren't necessarily cold when it happens....
Anyone else experience this?? It kind of freaks me out and I'm gonna bring it up with the doc when she has her 4 month check up on Tuesday. The boys didn't really have it quite this bad and it was way earlier with them and she didn't seem to have it at all until recently.
Most babies get purple hands/feet when they get chilled. Markus will sometimes get this in the tub with his hands. It's usually nothing but can be a sign of greater health issues such as poor circulaton/heart defects (which is unlikely since they test for so much at birth). I would definately tell your doctor... does she get it even when she is really warm?? Do you keep bodysuits/onesies on her? Maybe she's not warm enough? I know if they have a chill they will protect their organs first and then their extremities will go blue/purple.
