Tongue question?

I posted here a few weeks back and you guys were great, my son is going through some testing right now for developmental delay....but the other day my DH and I noticed that his tongue had black spots all over it, and he has not eaten anything new or gotten into anything....he's 13 months old on soy formula and baby food still...any ideas why he'd have a black tongue?

Wow - no idea - I've not heard of that one. I'd call your ped. Let us know what you find out though!

Hi Shannon - I did some quick searching and found that there can be a few causes - including antibiotics, normal differences in skin pigment, and some other, more concerning things.
