I had the same problem with my son but a lot of it had to do with him being born in the winter time. Come to think of it....my daughter was too!! Hehe. My son's hands do not get cold like that anymore and so I don't have to worry. If her body is warm and she seems to be okay and not fussy about it then I would say that it is something she will most probably grow out of. We have to remember that they are small and their bodies cannot regulate their body temperature yet. Hope I was some help!

It's just because those little hands don't do very much work. Mittens will limit mobility in her hands. The more they can move the warmer they will be. If it's very cold out be sure you have 'real' mitttens on her that are meant for cold weather, not just for looking cute.

Babies bodies know where the important organs are and work to keep those areas warm first. As long as your baby's chest/tummy and head feel warm I wouldn't worry too much about it. If her body feels cold take her temp. I think I read under 97 warrants a call to the dr.

My son ALWAYS has cold hands and feet, even if he's wearing socks their still cold. I'm that way too so I just figure he gets it from me. Anyways, it doesn't seem to bother him and I always dress him warmly and the rest of him is always nice and warm so if it's not bothering him I try not to worry about it
