Hi Connie,

 

Infant blood pressure varies depending on age and whether they're sleeping, awake, crying, etc.  Here are some general guidelines:

 

Less than 6 months - 85 (+/-10) over 46 (+/-9)

Over 6 months - 93 (+/-14) over 55 (+/-9)

By 12 months - 94 (+/-11) over 56 (+/-8)

 

All the best,

Hi Goodber_brat,

 

That looks like a blood pressure reading that is right around normal to me; however, you could always double check with her pediatrician.
