Does anyone have a baby who has what looks like bags under their eyes? My daughter is 11 and a half months old and she gets alot of sleep everyday but she still seems to have bags under her eyes...she's been so healthy and happy so i'm not too sure what's causing this? Just wondering if it's cause for alarm? Thanks

My son who is 2 and a half has major bags under his eyes almost all the time everyday his dentist actually said to me that his tonsils are enlarged and that its causing not enough oxygen to go to his brain. He sleeps great but when he is sleeping he is always moving around and kinda has a tiny snore but not often. He is going to see an specialist.

Two things one is dehydration and the other is it's just part of her normal face. I have dark circles under my eyes and have done all of my life and they get darker if I am dehydrated. People who don't know me always say I look tired. Try giving more fluid to your baby first to see if this helps, if not if she is fit and healthy then it is just part of her face.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I was thinking allergies as well - most common would be a cow's milk allergy.

Well my daughter also has dark circle's under her eyes, I have them as well so didn't think much of it but my pediatrician said it is common if the baby has alergies. Don't know if this may be the same for you but that is what I was told. As long as she is healthy and happy though I wouldn't be to concerned.
