Ask his Pediatrician
Wow, if his lips turn blue, you should be taking him in to be evaluated by his doctor for sure.
Tell the doctor at his next visit or call the nurses desk now.
Quoting Nursesummer:Yes I would worry. I'd be very worried. It could possibly be nocturnal hypoxia. That means the oxygen lever drops during sleep. We would be going to the doc ASAP Monday morning. And I'd ask for a overnight pulse ox test. That measures the oxygen level during the night.
Quoting Nursesummer:The color in his fingernail beds. Or the tips of his fingers. It should be pink. You can press light on his fingernail over his nail bed and then let go. It should take less than 3 seconds to turn from white to pink. Same thing with his toes
