Did your baby/babies have Mongolian Spots?

Did your docs ever assume the worst if they didn't know what they were? Out of all mine, my youngest also got one on her shoulder, weirdest place!

  • I think I worded that wrong when I said "assume the worst," I meant that as in them thinking it was a bruise and insinuating that maybe you were hurting the baby. When my brother was a baby and my mom took him the Dr's, he accused her of hitting him because he had never seen them before.
