Turn Blue While Bathing N Changing

My son is 6 days old.. He shivers his hands n feets while bathing n changing and his hands, feets n parts around his lips turn blue till i completely wrap him in blanket.. Sometimes he turns blue while crying too.. I took him to child specialist n he gave him norsaline p nasel drops 24 times in a day (every hour). I want to know if this problem serious?

Its called cyanosis there are alot of reasons for cyanosis either pulmonary and cardiac problems..cold temprature also causes cyanosis but it will only involve hand and feet not lips....my advice is to get proper evaliation from peads doctor just to be sure whats causing this problem

Baby needs frequent checkups of observations, as these can be serious
