Doctor insights on:
Purple Feet Baby
No: Infants centralize heat. Their extremities can be a little mottled and the hands and feet purple. No worries especially if baby is eating, sleeping, pooping and peeing normally.See 1 more doctor answer
Cold feet: You MAY have a circulation issue. Please see your doctor who can check on that or other possibilities and help. Peace and good health.
Venous congestion.: Congratulations on your pregnancy! this can be an exciting time. This can also be a time of discovery for other aspects of your body. With a baby onboard, this space occupying heaviness can impede the normal venous flow from the feet and legs to the heart. Pooled venous blood in your feet is blue due to low oxygenation--in contradistinction to the red oxygenated blood flowing from the heart.
Define purple feet: If your kid has pale or bluish/purple feet when they are exposed to a room temperature about 70 degrees but normal or pink in warm water, then the baby is shifting the surface blood flow to save energy. This is a normal function that allows baby to use energy for growth rather than to heat the feet. If purple in warm water you have a circulation/lung problem.See 1 more doctor answer

Purple feet: Purple feet (cyanosis) is usually due to congestion of the veins and is not a dangerous condition. If the feet are uncomfortable or swell you could get light compression stockings (15 -20 mmHg) as these would help. With your history I would see a rheumatologist to determine if this is part of a larger medical issue and whether further testing is warranted. Good luck!

Polycythemia: Depending on how high the red cell/hemoglobin levels are above normal, you may be dealing with polycythemia. This can be either a reactive phenomenon due to smoking or some other oxygen-deprivation signal that tells the body to make more red cells, or a 'myeloproliferative disorder' affecting the precursor cells in the bone marrow. Consider seeing an internist or hematologist.
purple feet/hands for long time. Wash hands a lot feel the cold anxious & am underweight. Is this due to heart failure? 19 no heart disease history
Cold hands & feet: In a skinny person are common, and can lead to the color changes, not a sign of heart failure since you don't have the history, best wishes
Normal in newborns: Newborns will have purle hands and feet and around the mouth can be a little purple. Truly purple lips and mouth need to be evaluated. Acrocyanosis is the technical name ofr the purple hands and feet and it improves with time.
Immature circulation: Your baby's circulation is still in the process of developing. Purple hands and feet is just a result of this immaturity. You do not need to be concerned if your baby is otherwise acting healthy. However if his lips or chest turn blue you should see your pediatrician as this can be a sign of cardiac disease.See 1 more doctor answer
@ what age does DHA need 2 be introduced into child's diet? He is 4 months old. Also his feet & hands a little purple, is this bcause he is cold?
Unknown: Dha is an omega-3 fatty acid important for developing babies and children, so it is good to have some dha intake, either from breastmilk, formula, and/or foods. The problem is that it is not known how to tell if a baby has too little or too much dha, how much is needed, how much to give, nor how digestible or absorbable various dha brands are. Talking with a pediatrician can help with the details.
