Purple Feet/Bad Circulation


Hi, just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what should I do?

My son is 7 months old and has always had cold hands and feet, Doctor said it's common for babies to have poor circulation so I try not to worry. However, no matter what he has on his feet, his feet are absolutely ice cold, except when he's in bed/bath. We went out yesterday and even though he was toasty and I wouldn't have dared put any more blankets over him because he'd have been too hot, his feet were freezing and dark purple. It terrified me

Is there anything I can do to help him with this? The HV/Doctors are dismissive, but it doesn't seem right. Thanks for any assistance, Angelina xx

Hmmm, I think you are right to be persistent if it is worrying you so much. Is there more than one GP at your surgery? Can you take LO to see a different GP if so? TBH, if they have said it is normal it probably is all ok, but I totally understand you wanting to get it checked out. I often have blue/purple feet and my hands and feet are always cold too, but there have been no problems with my circulation, if that makes you feel better?

I can see why you're worrying, my lo always has cold hands and feet, especially in this weather and it concerns me too. Even though her room at night is about 17/18 degrees her hands are like ice and I don't know why. I'm going to mention it when I next see the gp, see what they say. Like New Mrs W said, is there a different gp you can see at your surgery? Maybe get a second opinion? x

Thanks, it doesn't seem to bother him, it just concerns me. It's just scary to see your baby's feet turning purple My GP is always somebody different so I'll ask again about it. Sorry your little one is experiencing the same Bambino

Sophxx: I put him thick socks on under his babygrows and whilst his body and head are lovely and warm, his feet are absolutely freezing, even under his snowsuit when we are out. It's as if there is no body heat to insulate in his feet. It's weird.
