  • Babies at this age circulatory systems are still not as fully developed as ours, which isn't a cause for concern and it's normal. Massage is helpful. Swollen hands and feet would be more concerning. My doctor told us time and time over about the circulation thing. If you still feel uneasy, you can call your pediatrician's office and ask to speak with a nurse. Tell them what's going on and ask if it's normal. This will ease your mind - after all, us moms need a little comforting words too now and then.

  • Are you sure it's not just baby fat? If you are concerned, take him to the Ped.
