Bluish hand and foot of 6 month old, what does this mean?

Bluish hand and foot of 6 month old, what does this mean?

Positional: Babies do not have good regulation of blood distribution. They will often get blue here and there. If it comes and goes, it could be positional, cold or positional.

My 6 wk old has cold hands and feet does it mean she is too cold and need more clothes on?

No.: If she is acting well, drinking her milk well, making urine and feces normally, gaining weight like she should, then she is likely fine. I always advise dressing a child in the same way that you are comfortable. For example, if you are comfortable in a t shirt then your baby should not be in a sweater and two blankets. ...Read more

What can I do if my whole body gets cold when my ears get cold, feet, hands etc what's this supposed to mean?

What can I do if my whole body gets cold when my ears get cold, feet, hands etc what's this supposed to mean?

Your body's response: This is merely my opinion! i believe that your body seems to have a thermostat that is most sensitive and responsive in the ears. Your body temperature is regulated by either opening or closing the circulation to your fingers and toes.(cooling your inner body temperature (core temperature) is always natures priority. This can be significant if your extremities are feeling pain or turning blue. ...Read more

My 5 month old sons' hand and feet are ice cold and kinda bluish. He has always had cold feet but his hands have never been this cold.?

Normal finding: Babies most important job is to grow bigger so they are designed to avoid energy loss(heat) by shifting circulation away from the top of their skin of fingers, toes&ears to deeper skin.Stick the same bluish toes in warm water & they pink up.A better gage of oxygen flow is to open & look at the inside of the eyelid. Keep baby in a onezie with footies& this won't bother you or baby. ...Read more

How come when something scares me, my hands and feet go cold and then start to tingle?

How come when something scares me, my hands and feet go cold and then start to tingle?

Adrenaline: Our body responds to fear with a release of adrenaline. Adrenaline (the flight or fight hormone) prepares our body for an emergency by decreasing the circulation to the limbs (so you bleed less if you get slashed) & shunting the blood to the major organs. It also increases respiration which changes the pH of the blood which can cause a tingly sensation. ...Read more

Incr temp & activity: Without seeing you and doing a physical exam and without having your vital signs it is very hard to make an assessment about your cold extremities at home. The most common reasons would be a cold environment (home) and lack of physical activity. The best way to test this out would be by doing 10 laps around the living room, wearing warmer clothes (gloves/socks), or simply turning up temp inside. ...Read more
