Baby Hands Cold When Sleeping

Hello,

I noticed that in the morning when waking up our 6 month child's hands are cold. Rest of her body - back neck, tummy etc feels warm. I've checked the room temp during the night and her hands feel ok. Is it common for infants hands to be colder first thing in the morning? Thanks!

  • I had this same concern with our little girl when she was a few months old and we had just stopped swaddling her. Dr. Google said that it’s pretty normal and that a baby’s chest and back is a better measure for their body temp.
