  • its probally nouthing, bbut ask anyways.
    when i brought my son home i swear i didnt notice it but in the up coming weeks i noticed what looked like a bruise on his hip! i thought it was from the diaper..talked to the dr..turns out its a birth mark! and here he is one year later with this birthmark on his hip! and if i dont tell the sister or the daycare when they do go they think its a bruise!

  • My daughter has a spot on her face called Cafe au Lau, basically coffee with cream. It showed up when she was about three months old, got progressively darker. She is five now, I took her to doc, normal, nothing to worry unless they come in clusters. I would have it checked out for sure, but prob nothing.
    I love hers, it gives her character although we will prob have it removed in the next couple years, it is getting fuzzy.
