    Ok, this sort of thing happened to all three of my toddlers, prompting me to drag them all in to the pedi...During questioning about their dietary preferences, he determined that they all loved carrots and ate them regularly....Their orange hue thankfully, was related to carotene intake and nothing more serious....Take care and keep us posted...

    Thank you everyone,
    My daughter is an orange tinge because of the carotene in her vitamins. This makes me feel very relieved. She is a happy healthy 2 year old. Now that my nerves are shot, I will get ready for my 1st. prenatal exam. This is my 4th pregnacy and I feel crazy as always.

    Thanx again,
    Mary-Angela
