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 it seem to bother her? It could just be because of her immature circulatory system and she could be perfectly fine and something she will grow out of. Never hurts to have it checked out, though.

It sounds like she may have a lack of oxygen getting to her hand.  My mom has this and has had it since birth, but  it can develop at anytime in life.
