  • Both of my girls have a stork bite that match their daddy's on the back of their neck. They faded as babies, but when they get upset you can see them once again. Some don't fade at all.

  • It's on the back of his head and starting to be covered by his hair. But they told me that they usually fade a little by the time that he's a year,well that's only a month and a half from now and it's not even a little lighter.

  • my 6 year old has one and he also has a strawberry kiss on his forehead.... its for the most part faded on a daily basis now but you can see it whenever he gets upset, mad or has a fever.

  • my 10 (almost 11 month) old has one on the back of her very upper neck. it doesn't seem to have faded at all since birth but her hair is so long and thick that you can't see it unless you brush her hair away. i personally think it's cute

  • My son and I both have them on the base of our necks and they don't go away.
