    Default Babys legs turning red?

    DD just started screaming hysterically so I looked her over and noticed her legs and feet were red and splotchy. I couldn't calm her down, she screamed for at least 15min. She was also kicking her legs together like they were hurting her.

    Now she is laughing and smiling at me. Her legs still look a bit splotchy but not red anymore.

    We noticed the red the other day (with no crying) but after a while it was gone.

    Any ideas what it is?

    is it the same sort of blotchiness as when babies are cold?

    No, only bits of her legs go red and splotchy, like the insides of her calves, her feet and the tops of her thighs.

    could possibly be hot spots, may try a cold flannel on those areas next time it happens and see if that soothes it. does it happen often

    Was anyone holding her? I've noticed if people hold my daughter differently her legs can go numb and blotchy

    Yes, but no different than any other way. Today I was just holding her in a cradle position. Do you think it's pressure marks?

    Maybe try the cool flannel next time and see if it's heat spots. If they keep happening maybe speak to a CHN
