Ever since dd's birth 11mo ago her feet turned purple during baths. 2 days ago we went swimming and her feet turned really purple we took her out and wrapped her in 2 towels. Is this something to worry about or mention to her dr?

you should mention it.  are they cold?  when you rub them does it go away?  is she cold when it happens?  does "she" seem to notice?  is she uncomfortable?  does it happen in cold or warm water or both.  i am sure you know it has to do with circulation.  i would take a picture when it happens to show her pediatrician.  don't worry...sounds harmless...

I gave them to each kid for about 3 months but then I started feeding them iron enriched foods and it's helped

My niece has Reynaud's syndrome (sp). It has to do with circulation. Her feet and fingers turn red, then purple, when they get too cold.
