I am not in the medical profession but the only things I know of that would cause lips to turn blue or purple would be lack of oxygen or being cold. If she is not cold you really should address this with her pediatrician.

I know what can cause skin and lips to turn blue and it should be checked if it is an on going problem but I think sometimes moms on her want definite medical answers and many of us are not qualified to give those answers and those that are really can't without seeing the individual.

Take her to a doctor. It may not be serious, but it also could be. Don't risk it.

I really don't, like I said those are just things I know of that will cause lips or skin to turn blue or purple. If you have concerns than by all means take her to the doctor.

Just her being cold, it could be from outside temperature or just her body temperature. If it is her body temperature she could have poor blood circulation. I am just offering ideas as to what it could be that does not mean that is the problem.
