You should probably take her to the ER.... I think if their lips are turning colors then they aren't getting enough oxygen...

Take her to the ER. It sounds like she isn't getting enough oxygen.

Then call 911 and have them come check her out. Lips turning color=not enough oxygen.

hold her close, get her to lay down and watch her chest as she breathes. is she breathing too fast/slow? something's wrong, white lips arent normal

She is acting fiNe? Has eaten well today, not been overly fussy? If yes then I wouldn't call911 or rush to the ER. Call your regular dr & see what they want you to do.



My sons lips turn Pullman blue whenever he's really active, nothings wrong that the drs can find. We have even had an echo done

Rub her lips with your finger.
If they bleed after you rub them - it could be thrush.
Does it look like a white film on the lips, or are the actual lips white?



I would think if she wasn't getting enough oxygen the lips would turn blue rather than white.
Are your gums still pink and reddish??
