In brief: Yes

Babies may have cool hands and feet for a variety of reasons.
Most often, the baby may be under dressed, and by moving the warm blood from the extremities to the core (abdomen and chest), baby is conserving heat and energy. If your baby feels cool all over or is acting sick, consult your doctor right away.
