My daughter has a limited diet due to medical issues and went yellowish , almost as if she had a tan , more obvious in sunlight and in the creases nad it was too much veg, apparantly even cabbage, carrots butternut sqyash etc cause this.
I had this with my ds when he was 7 months old, thought he was looking slightly yellow so took him to doctors who thought he looked more pale so sent him for a blood test and be was anaemic. Maybe go to doctors to put yours & your dh mind at rest.
He was jaundiced as a newborn but this cleared completely. DH thinks it's been happening sporadically over the past few weeks. No, a doctor hasn't seen him when he's been like this as I think they'd send me packing!
I'm not terribly worried but DH wanted me to ask some wise Mumsnetters
9mo DS is very healthy and happy - off-the-charts long for his age, although 25th centile for weight - but has times when he has a distinctly yellow tinge to his skin. The sclera of his eyes are white and his poos and wees are fine. Family and friends have commented on it, although nursery haven't mentioned anything and they're very good at mentioning anything out of the ordinary. DM's theory is that they feed him lots of carrots there although I have heard of carrots turning people a bit orange.
Any ideas, or do you think this is just within DS's normal range of hues?
