They can

Cold sores are caused by a herpes virus. It is quite contagious so yes your baby can get herpes from another person and herpes virus stay dormant in our body and can reactivate any time in the future.

can you get herpes cold sores on your tongue. because i have this big red sore on my tongue since sunday?

Canker sore

Canker_sore
What you are describing sounds more like an apthous ulcer, or canker sore. It has a red center with a whitish rim. It can be pretty painful and last a good week or two. There are OTC products like Kanka or Zilactin that can reduce pain. Your dentist can prescribe Apthasol or cauterize it with a laser. Herpes, or cold sores tend to appear on the outer part of your lips rather than in your mouth.
