Dear ATP Mom,

Do you clean the baby's tongue daily?

If it is milk stain, it will be EASILY REMOVED by cleaning with water and cotton wool without leaving any sores or bleeding.

But if it is not milk stain, it is oral thrush and usually not easy to remove and if forcefully removed, will cause raw edges or wound.

However, if you are not sure of which it is, see a Paediatrician to check.
