  • That's usually a sign that their blood isn't circulating properly. That and being cold are the only things I've ever heard of that causes that.

  • In newborns, yes, it's common. Yours isn't a newborn. Make sure his feet aren't cold - get socks with grippy bottoms or soft bottomed slippers. Otherwise, it can't hurt to ask his doctor.

  • Is his diaper on too tight? When my son was 6 months old one of his feet and legs kinda looked blue-ish...then purply, and it turns on we had the diaper on too tight. hehe. Mama moment.
