My 19 day old daughter is being fed breast milk and formula via bottle. Her tongue is extremely white. Is this normal?

In brief: White tongue

If the white areas come off easily, with a facecloth than likely milk related.
If not is may be thrush. But if she is feeding well and her mouth is not red or sore, most doctors would just observe this. All the best.
