I'm having a cosmetic procedure done to my 7 month old tomorrow

And I'm REALLY struggling with it. My dd has port wine stains on a large part of her body and they are starting laser treatments on them tomorrow. They will put her under anesthesia to do them.

I am still so torn about whether to do them or not :(. I want to do them so she can have a normal childhood, but i have grown to love every single one of them. I just don't want her to look back and think that she wasn't good enough the way she is :(

You posted about her having them on her face, right? And those are the only ones you're doing? I would do it. GL mama.

 Unless they are on her face or hands I would not do it, but otherwise you're just making life easier for her down the road

If they are on her face, I understand and would do it. I bet she will thank you down the road.

What's the prognosis for them?
Have you spoken to other parents facing this decision, and more importantly, have you spoken to people who've got port wine stains or had them removed?

Yes, she has them on her face, under her chin, back of her head, arms, chest, knee, backs of her legs, and on her back. They said they will do them all since they will have her under anyway.

I would do it. Specially if its on visible body parts. She will not look back and think that you didnt love her the way she was. She will thank you for not letting other kids be able to pick on her.
