Blue Hands and Feet

Sometimes a baby is born with a bluish tint to her hands and feet, although her body has normal color. This bluish tint is called “acrocyanosis” and it happens because your baby is reacting to leaving your warm body, and entering the cooler air. This can also show up later, if your baby gets cold. It should disappear once your baby warms up.
