    My babygirl of 5 months has consistent deep red, at times almost purple or blue lower extremities. Especially her feet. Sometimes its only right after her naps. Other times her feet are discolored all day. whether her feet are cold to the touch doesn't seem to matter. Her clothes are not too tight and she does not seem to be bothered by this difference in color whatsoever. Should we be alarmed and or seek medical attention, or is this typical for a first year beautiful babygirl.

    I have never heard of this before. My first thought is maybe a circulation problem? I would make an appointment to see the pedi.

    Welcome to the community and what a great profile name!

    I agree with the other poster that you should call and see your pediatrician about this, in case it is a problem with circulation or something else.

    While new rashes and skin conditions can appear in newborns for up to months, you should definitely not take a chance with your little one's health. Check out this When Your Baby's Skin Looks Blue article for more information and please take your precious daughter to the pediatrician asap if you haven't already.

    Keep us posted and please take care!
