These dark rings under your little girl's eyes are known as 'shiners' The most common cause is due to allergies, but you say that your baby is not allergic. Another possible cause is anaemia which needs to be excluded of your daughter is rather pale. Sometimes the dark rings are simply found in some families and there is no obvious cause.
