Blue legs and feet!?!

Today DD(3 months) and I went and saw my friend who had never seen her. She was holding DD and my mom, who was with us, said DD's legs looked blue. Then when my friend handed her back to me, her feet looked really blue. I've noticed the feet looking blue before, but never her legs. Her upper half didn't look like this, only her legs and feet. What could this be and should I be worried?!

  • The same thing happened to my little boy and we live in California so it wasn't the cold weather. Our pediatrician said it is a circulation issue but she still had us visit a cardiologist just in case.

  • Maybe poor circulation or low oxygen. I'm not sure. I'd call the doc just to be sure.

  • I would call ask a nurse at your nearest hospitol and tell them whats going on asap cuz I've never heard of a baby anything being blue

  • Not sure where you live but was she cold? All I can think of is poor circulation, or being cold but then her hands would be blue also. I think you should call the Doc.

  • My daughter had blue legs and feet until she hit 6 months. They were never cold so I didn't worry.
