Call 911 if:
- You notice severe difficulty in breathing.
- Your baby's skin appears blue, a sign he is not getting enough oxygen.
- Your pediatrician is not available.
In a newborn, it's common for the area around a baby's mouth and even the palms and soles of the feet to turn blue once in awhile. But when a baby's lips, mouth, head, or torso are blue, it's a sign of a more serious problem and you should seek medical help right away.
Call Doctor If:
- Your baby has blue lips or skin.
That can be a sign that the baby is not getting enough oxygen. Your doctor will run tests to find out what’s causing the problem.
