My son is 11 months old and for the past several weeks, his lips seem to be a blue/purple color. I took him to the pediatrician and they did a CBC and sauid his Iron was in normal range (on the lower side) and that his heart sounded good. Basically gave me no answers and it continues. Do you have any suggetions on what else can cause that? He has been a healthy baby for the most part, no major problems or illnesses. Please help, I am worried about him but his Dr does not seem concerned.
