Do babies have Dark Circles?

Yes, some babies do have dark circles. If your baby also have than there is nothing to worry about it, it’s very normal. There are a number of reasons why your baby may have dark circles under his eyes. We all have thinner skin under our eyes than on the rest of our faces. 

This means blood vessels under the skin can make the area around the eyes look darker.
It’s possible that the skin around your baby’s eyes is even more transparent than on other babies. This will make the dark circles under his eyes more obvious. Maybe this runs in your family? If you have dark circles around your eyes, it’s likely your baby will too.
Tiredness can make the dark circles stand out more. If your baby is very tired, his complexion may look paler. This will make the blood vessels underneath his skin look darker. Your baby may also rub his eyes when he’s tired, making the sensitive skin around his eyes turn red.
If your baby has a darker skin tone it could also give the appearance of circles under the eyes. Occasionally, dark circles are caused by something other than skin tone. Allergic conditions, such as a runny nose, sinusitis or eczema, could cause dark circles.
Talk to your doctor if you are worried.
