Blue baby syndrome, also known as methemoglobinemia, is a condition that causes a baby’s skin to turn blue. While it is rare, a common cause of this discoloration is drinking formula made with water that is contaminated with nitrates. Doctors can treat blue baby syndrome, but untreated cases can be fatal.
