was your child born with a Mongolian birth mark somewhere other than his butt/back?

My daughter has a blue mark on her arm. It covers almost her entire arm and looks like a bruise. The doctor says it's a mongolian birth mark. I didn't know they could be on the arm.

  • I have seen other kids with them on their arms, and one girl who had a bluish streak right across her forehead.

  • my little cousin (he's 2) was born with them covering a good portion of his body... arms/legs/back/butt... some have faded now, but still visible... my kids all had them on their butt cracks.
