When do babies start getting freckles?

My daughter is 15 months old. She has three freckles but they're on her leg and butt. I'm part irish and have freckles everywhere. My mom told me I had tons of freckles by the time I was at my daughters age. When did your child start getting freckles and how many did they have at 15 months old?

  • It depends. Sun exposure brings freckles out. Not all people get them though.

  • My son has two right now and he is 14 months. He's had them for a while, one high on his forehead, around his hair line and the other on his cheek. I have one on my cheek around the same spot. I don't think it is anything to worry about unless they look weird or misshapen.
