Baby's got an orange tongue!
In peace & health,
I know this is an old thread but what became of your lo's orange tongue? My fifteen month old son has had an orange tongue since he was about ten months old. His pedi did not seem concerned about it when I mentioned it to them at his visits. However my sister is freaking out about it saying he has a enzyme or vitamin deficiency and I need to take him to the Dr's again. I'm just assuming it's part of his normal flora and since everyone is different his bacteria is in balance with something orange cultured on his tongue. He takes some probiotics through coconut kiefer and yogurt and he eats and nurses well so I don't think it is detrimental. Who else has experienced an orange tongue in a little one and what was it?
Hi mom's of orange tongue'ers....
I just google this topic and this page come up. I too noticed about a week ago my daughter had a bit of a tint of orange to her tongue. I brush her teeth and tongue daily so I wasn't sure what it could be. Well it is still there today and I spoke to the doctor and she said as long as she isn't having any other weird symptoms she is fine. Which she isn't, same old little 17 month old. I just can't find any info on it, I have come across it actually alot with kids and adults online but no real reason why. Very interesting, any of the other moms, did you child's tongue ever lose the orange. Or will she be that kid in school in a few years with the odd orange tongue??
