    My LOs hands is always like this too. Her hands are constantly cold. But like someone has already mentioned earlier, this is fine cos their body temp wont be as cold.

    yep, I've been told it's fine too. The best way to check if they're too cold is to slip your fingers under their clothes and feel the temp of their chest. Alasdair has his sleeping bag, a cellular and a fleecey type blanket. I'm planning on putting another cellular on him when it gets really cold again as it's been a bit warmer over the past week or so down here!

    Even with mitts on their little hands can feel like ice but don't worry about it....as xarlenex says, it doesn't have any reflection of what their real body temperature is.

    By the way....socks stay on better than scratch mitts;), honestly:happydance:

    I usually keep the tem of the room a bit cooler so she has clod hands often.
    I sometimes put mittens on her,sometimes not.

    Cold hands are fine.:)
