Brief Answer:

It depends on the ambient temperature, please.

Detailed Answer:


If the baby is actively feeding, gaining weight well and playful, you need not be worried.

I have a few questions for you -

1. Is there any bluish discolouration on the lips and fingertips?
2. What is the baby's date of birth?
3. What is the current weight of the baby?

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:

It seems to be because of weather changes - don't worry.
