I'm a new mother and this is my first child. He is a 7 week old baby boy. He started out with one white spot on his bottom lip. Now he has 3 or 4 white spots on both his upper and lower lips and his whole entire tongue is covered with white spots? What can this be? Please help!!!

It could be thrush, which is a yeast infection in the mouth. You should have him checked out by a doctor and get treatment. If it is thrush, and he is breastfeeding, then you need to be treated, too. Because it could have infected your nipples and you could pass it back and forth between mommy and baby.
