White babies with orange-ish noses??

Ok, I know this may sound STUPID. But I've noticed in a lot of photos, some of the white babies/toddlers have orange tinted noses? It's not my monitor. I've seen this on a few PC's, and in person too. Has anyone else seen this?

  • It is called Hyperkeratinism...from eating an excess of things like sweet potatoes and carrots. It is harmless and common.

  • One of mine always had an orange nose as a baby. I can't remember which one. I just remember my SIL who never had kids trying to clean it off, as she thought he still had lunch on his face : /

  • hehe both of mine lived with orange noses but now my three year old would rather eat any vegetables than sweets, carrots are still her favorite although now we have to have ranch..
