My lo has a blue vein on the bridge of his nose between his eyes.when i asked my paed about it, she said it is nothing and will fade with time. But when i googled about it, I came across several forums where it has been named "Sugar Bug" and babies with this vein have sugar sensitivity,cry more & have temper issues. is it true or just a myth?

Hi New Mom! We understand that at this stage a new mom is faced with so many surprises. We can never be totally prepared. Your pediatrcian has checked your baby and if your baby is not showing any abnormal signs then be at ease. Keep monitoring her and of course in your next check up with your doctor, confide and openly talk about your concerns. All the very best! We are here for you.

Hi, trust ur paediatrician. As far as i know, there is no scientific theory to proove this.Some holistic websites are talking about it.There are several blood vessels running beneath the skin n they will be apparent if the skin is very pale..This is upto my knowledge. I did not hear till u raise the topic.Any updates regarding this are welcome.

it's a myth completely. dont worry.

Thank you so much..big relief!
