    Bags under eyes....?!?!?!

    For as long as i can remember Mia has had bags under her eyes. But she sleeps 12 hours at night and has 2 day naps. She just always looks tired because of them. Not sure if there is any pics that u can see them well on here but feel free 2 look at my gallery. Is it normal to have bags under her eyes all the time??? is there anything im not doing?? As far as i know, it doesnt look like it runs in the family.....

    Hun what I say may not be what you want to hear... but its a tell tale sign of food intolerances and allergies.

    Matilda used to have huge dark circles under her eyes, for the first 3 years of her life. She doesn't anymore...

    hrmmmm how odd. She has been checked for Lactose Intolorance. I think it has stayed the same, and hasnt changed since she has been on solids??????

    It might not be "bags", but just her skin shows up the veins under her eyes more than other babies. Can you see her veins anywhere else (like the temple). I really don't know...just offering a suggestion...

    I think bags under eyes may be a lack of iron as well, have you had this checked?

    From your ticket picture, it looks more like you might mean puffy eyes? If that's the case, she could be retaining fluid (it's not just a PMT thing, 'coz she looks a little young for that! lol). Retaining fluid can indicate too much salt or that she's not getting enough water (either through BM or bottle) so you might like to get her hydration levels checked?

    I would have thought she is getting enough iron from her formula and all her vegies?

    she doesnt have much water.. just whats in her bottles. SO should i be giving her more? How do they check iron and hydraytion? KL.. does water seem to make it any better?
