  • i don't have any. and my daughter didn't have one at all til she was 3 months old. weird i know but her docs never saw one and i didn't see one til she was 3 months, she has a "storks bite" mark on the back of her lower scalp you can't see it now b/c its covered in hair.

  • No, not everyone is supposed to have one. They record them if they have them, but many (most) babies don't :)

  • I don't have one. My little guy had a "stork bite" on the back of his neck, but it's gone now. My little girl has one on her back that will be permanent, I assume.

  • They also develop later on, so if they are not apparent at birth they can develop anytime. My youngest just had one show up on his upper arm, it is just a little brown dot.
    My middle son has one that covers half of his head. Half of his hair is light, and half is dark brown. His skin has it too but it is not noticeable unless he has been out in the sun and gets a tan. The darker side tans and the light side doesn't.

  • I was born with a strawberry mark that went away after a couple of years, My son didn't get his til he was like 4 months old and the weirdest thing is......he has 3 that are identical to his dads. Same spot, shape and size. I remember telling him DNA test my butt! Look at him!
