My daughter is one-month old. We have been noticing that she has both clammy hands & feet. Her temperature is in the 98.5 range. Is the clamminess normal? And, what causes it?

  • Well, for the hands, babys hands are in a constant fist until i think 3 or 4 months when they start to keep their hands open. So maybe her hands are just sweaty from being closed.

    Thats just a thought. It strictly just a guess.

  • My baby is three months old and she's always had cold/clammy feet and sometimes her hands too. I read in a book that their circulation is still developing and that it's pretty normal. Feel the back of her neck or her belly and if those places feel warm she should be fine.

  • Circulation is still developing at this point so it's totally normal for the hands and feet to be cold, clammy but overly sweaty indicates that baby is way too hot!
