Q.

babies tongue goes blue

hi
My son is 51/2 months old and we notice that his tongue sometimes turns blue. I normally notice this when he is crying or eating but then it could also be at other times?
Can you possibly tell me what is causing this reaction?

This is not normal. It is just possible that your baby may have a heart defect that needs to be investigated.
