Why does my baby have blue stain on tongue?
Why does my baby have blue stain on back on tongue?
Depending on the shade of color and how deep it appears to be, there are several possibilities for your baby's blue tongue. Rather than trying to guess those things, however, I recommend that you have your baby examined by a pediatric dentist for a better idea of what may be causing this "stain" and what, if anything, might need to be done next. Good luck!
