In brief: Depends
Dark brown to black appearance on the inside of your baby's lips might indicate your baby is not getting enough oxygen (cyanosis).
If you baby is not feeding well, sweating with feeds or very sleeping take him/her to the er. Otherwise be sure to contact your md asap. This might be normal but please have your baby examined.
