Body Going Cold During Sleep.

person-avatar

Hi my baby is over a month now. I've noticed that her body goes cold (hands and feet) when she's sleeping. Is this something normal? I'll appreciate your opinions.

Keem your room temperature at 28degree centigrade
Operate A/C also at 28 or 29
.
If hands and feet remain cold despite keeping room temp at 28 , then cover baby's head using newborn baby caps made of thin cloth.
Do not use thick or woolen cap in this season

It is because central parts of body (Head, Neck) are warmer than rest of body (due to increased blood supply to central parts).
