We are off to the DR tomorrow & will get them to check. She dosent seem to worry her @ all and i am always checking to see if its changed size & or colour. it has a little lump @ the base of the mark. I am hoping that it will be O.K.
Laura was born by C-section. all the nurses ask first is "was she born with the forcepts.
I only noticed it about 2-3 weeks after bringing her home from hospital. She if happy and sitting/arching right up high when on tummy.

go figure my baby boy has the same spot, it does seem to be fading now, as you know he is almost the same age as your Kane,

My girl has marks on the back of her head, just above the neck. However out of 9 babies in my mothers group, 6 have the same marks, which are all starting to break up and fade. Gemma also has a few strawberry birthmarks on her lower back, right where she will probably want to get a tattoo when she gets to the rebellious age!!! LOL! These are slightly fading, but not at the rate of the ones on her head.

My almost three year old was born with the slightly raised strawberry marks on his back and we were told as he grows they don't so by the time he is around 3 or 4 they will have disappeared and they almost have, so am guessing by the time he is 4 and an even "bigger kid" (his words) they will have disappeared altogether it is funny looking back at the old photo's and how much bigger they seemed.

What is the diference in the Latte birthmark you mentioned?
Laura's is soft to touch, size of my thumb-nail. still very vasculiar.red blotches. It hasnt seemed to change size or colour at all.
My doc says to monitor it and it should go away.Just always worried about her rolling and hitting her head on it. she is just 6months now.
