  • My son has a birth mark on his knee since he was born. He's 4 and he thinks it's dirt on his knee. I would watch it and see if it changes color. Then when you go to the doctors next time ask him.
    Good Luck ! He use to have a strawberry color patch on one of his inner thighs when he was an infant but it's gone now.

  • At 7 months old, could he have gotten a bruise or something? Some kids aren't even sitting up alone good at that age, and some are almost walking. You would know how active he is and if he might have bumped against something.

  • Most babies are born with a birthmark but I have been told that biracial babies have a 'coffee patch' that can be anywhere, butt, leg, arm, back, tummy, etc. Ask your doctor next time your child goes in for a check up.

  • It's probably mongolian spots. I don't know much about them, but a little boy i used to babysit had them on his rear and his thigh's. His mom said he wasn't born with them but they kinda developed as he got older and the doctor said they may lighten as he got older but alot of children of mixed races, especially black and white have them. Hope that helps, and hope i got most of the facts right.
