Q:

my 16 days baby boy lips turning dark ...



Sonali Shivlani

The lips do appear darker as compared to birth since the oxygenation happens in the blood once the baby starts breathing outside air. Also the suckling at the breast increases the blood flow to the mouth. However if you are concerned please do discuss this with the doctor.
