can babies get blood blisters on their hands?

Possible, but...: There are many things that mimic "blood blisters" that would appear on a baby's hand. First thing that comes to mind is a developing hemangioma. These are collections of blood vessels under the skin that enlarge over the first months of life. Also, babies can have sucking blisters where they essentially give themselves hickies from sucking on their hands. Ask pediatrician to take a look.
