her left hand is constantly a purpelish color and much colder than the other one. its also puffyer. its been like this for as long as i remember but im judt noticing how bad it is just recently. im making a doctors appt tommorow but i thought id just get on here and ask anyways. never hurts to ask.

just so you know i checked for hairs around her wrists and everything becuase i heard that can sometimes cause this, but this has been going on way to long for that to be the case anyways...when  she gets cold it will turn like light blue and her other hand dosent do that!

whats wrong with my baby? =(

i appreciate any input. you gals are great.<3

Does she keep her hand in a closed fist? My oldest son used to do that and his ped told me it was because he would keep it in a fist. If you push on her hand does it blanch? Meaning does her color come back right away? Do you leave an indentation on her skin? Could it be the way she was laying on it? I know I didn't help much but tried to.
