  • It is a broken blood vessel, she could have poked herself, coughed funny, sneezed funny, threw a really bad tantrum, it happens but it is ok it will go away.

  • My son has gotten that 3 times, always in the same spot, and he's only five months old. It SEEMS to show up the day after he's had a major crying fit. It makes me feel like such a bad mom!
