My Baby Has Cold Wet Feet

I have a thing for baby feet. It’s a seriously disturbing addiction to the little feet and toes on a newbie.

Earlier this week I noticed something weird. Zeke’s feet get very cold and wet, like seriously gross slimey. It doesn’t matter if he is wearing socks, footsie pajamas or if he is barefoot — his feet feel nasty.

At first I played it off as no big deal. Then after my husband noticed — you would think that there was something seriously wrong with our kid the way he went on and on about the baby’s feet. 

After searching and asking around (apparently this issue with baby feet is common) and numerous moms ponder the same question that I have.

It’s such an in-your-face answer: it’s sweat. Yes, good ol’ wet and gross sweat.

Interesting fact for the day: Each of your feet have approximately 250,000 sweat glands.

Crazy, I tell you. File this under things my son will hate me later for blogging about.
