Hello Ona, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Bluish (cyanosis) in newborns can be caused by many possibilities. First of all cyanosis can be divided into acrocyanosis or blueness that only occurs in the hands and feet, and central cyanosis or blueness that occurs in the entire body.
Acrosianosis can occur due to a cold baby and is a very normal condition after the baby is born. This condition will improve itself when the baby is warmed. In some babies the blue hands and feet may persist for several weeks after delivery and this condition is also a normal condition. Central cyanosis is a condition that can occur due to a decrease in the amount of oxygen carried by blood throughout the body. This condition is an abnormal condition and must get an evaluation and management immediately. Central cyanosis can occur due to abnormalities in the heart, lungs, or in the baby's blood. If what happens is only acrocyanosis, then the possibility of the baby experiencing a cold during IMD. Drying the baby's body, warming the room temperature, or stopping IMD and warming the baby in an incubator can be the solution to overcome this condition. If what happens is central cyanosis, the baby must be given oxygen immediately and an evaluation of the lungs, heart and blood must be done immediately. If you see a baby experiencing this, you should immediately call a health worker so that management can be done immediately needed for the baby.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
