Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum. There is nothing to worry here. Lactogen will not cause darkening of lips.Sometimes dark lips can be because of too much wind in the baby. Try burping her more often after feeds. If you feel dark lips are persistent and there is no improvement you must take her to the pediatrician. This is to rule out respiratory or heart problems. Take care
