Dark circles under eye

My 3 month old baby started having Dark circles under her eyes about 2 weeks ago. They come and go. What could be causing them? She sleeps enough. Wakes up 2-3 times to feed during night and takes 3-4 1 hour naps during day. Is my milk lacking some vitamins?

  • Is she on oral steroids? My dd was and a side effect was dark circles.

  • Is she on oral steroids?

    No. Not taking anything at all. Just breastmilk.

  • Hmmm... bring it up to your ped on your next visit. I don't think it's anything to worry about though. Good Luck!

  • My daughter has that too. I have to ask her pedi at her next appointment. She is light skinned so maybe is has to do with veins or something?

  • my daughter and I both have them, from allerigies.. the trees that are blooming, or just the air set us off. Talk to your doctor about it though, everyone is different.
