Cold hands

DD's is nearly 11months old and her hands get like blocks of ice when she sleeps. She wears a sleepsuit (and vest in the winter) and is in a growbag- the rest of her is quite warm, the room is between 18-20 degrees. Any ideas about what to do about her hands or is this normal?

Yes it's normal, feel the back of her neck/chest and if that feels warm then she should be fine. Hands are often colder than the rest of the body and it sounds like she is sleeping in the right amount of clothing for the room temp smile

I always worry about this with DD, she sleeps in the same things as your DD but when she wakes several bloody times for boob I always feel terrible because her little hands are freezing sad

Thanks, makes me feel better that it's normal! Her neck/chest is always nice and warm so I guess she's ok. Must take after me, DH swears I have no blood sometimes as I get so cold!

I used to put socks on DS's hands but his room was a bit cooler than your DD's. If the rest of them is warm and they aren't waking up cold they're probably fine. I used to really fret over the hands thing blush
