    Default So I turned my baby orange....

    So DD had been on solids for about 1 and I half months now and almost every meal I make her I add a carrot or pit . Pumpkin to thicken it up. And plus sh loves both of them. She eats a verity of fruit and veges but always with them added. I took her to the Dr a Few days ago because I was worried about her l very yellow. I was scared becaus when she was born she had terrible jaundice , I also went to DR Google (bad idea)and freaked out about liver conditions and diseases.

    Dr laughed at me and said it was the food I'm giving her. A bit embarrassed but anyway. Only just realized that didn't explain more than that it was just carrots, squash, pumpkin and sweet potato.

    So I'm lower the amount of those things in her diet. Just curious though if th has happened to anyone else and does it disappear and if so how long did it take to disappear?

    LOL... don't stress, I've had many friends have this happen to their little ones... totally understand that it can be a little scary (DD2 had jaundice as a newbie too)! You're doing a good job mumma! And I would rather take my kids to the doctor and be told it's nothing than not take them and gave snorting wrong - so don't be embarrassed!!! xx

    This happened to my friend's son haha. He was obsessed with carrots. I don't think it took too long for his skin to lose the orange-ness once the carrots were cut back.

    Yep, exactly the same with DD, she loved pumpkin, her whole face went orange particularly her nose!
    Coincidently she had really bad jaundice as a newborn too!

    Hers are the same. And her nose and eyebrows are almost fluorescent orange. I guess I just didn't notice earlier on because it was gradual and I was always seeing her. Didn't notice until my brother in law said I should dye her hair green. I asked why and he said she would look like an oompa loompa. He didn't mean it in the nasty way it sounds. And it's a little funny now I'm not so scared lol

    Apparently this happened to my nephew when he started solids, because of too much pumpkin and sweet potato, but I didn't get to see his orange 'tan'. And he's absolutely fine now - not orange any more. Never heard of it before then. But after reading other posts it looks like it's not unusual.

    I turned DS a little orange too, by feeding him too much pureed carrot and sweet potato. It really wasn't long before his colour returned, maybe a day or two of no orange foods.
