I would like to know if you could help me I have got a 7 month old baby, last week was the second time since she was born that her forehead was swollen and her eyes was blinking and it looked like she had a headache and she was very grumpy. Her cheaks also gets realy red and you can see small vains, then her hands and feet also go blue. I just want to know what that symptoms can be and if it could be serious. She has never bumped her head. So it cant be that.

You definitely need to visit a pediatrician to examine your baby. Blue hands and feet could indicate some type of heart defect that can be confirmed via auscultation and heart ultrasound. Forehead swelling should be also checked by a medical doctor.
