Not the mom, but Grandma

My first grandbaby was born 2 weeks ago and was born with a pigmented hairy nevus on his temple/face, it measures 8cm so it is rather large. Mommy & Daddy are adjusting well and love the little guy to peices! But none of us are too sure how to handle the "gasps", or the "OH my's" , or "wow did he get hurt " or "holy crap look at the hair on that thing"when in public and people make such rude comments. I personally would like to rip their faces off(LOL) but we want little cameron to learn to deal with it in a better more positive way. Also was wondering if anyone else out there has a child with a hairy nevus? Were wanting to look into health risks and get some support so we can best deal with this.

heres a pic of my sweet grandbaby! Cameron

My daughter has a hemangioma on her face so I can relate to the public comments.  I don't know much about a hairy nevus but I wanted to say that Cameron is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!

I do know exactly what you mean! It's SO hard sometimes. I even found myself getting angry when children point and stare...It's painful but I have to remember that Michaela doesn't even know what is going on.  I have become stronger and less aware actually to strangers and their "stares".  I KNOW she is my beautiful baby girl and she is perfect in our eyes.  Give Cameron tons of hugs and kisses....as I am sure you already do a TON of that!! ;)

Take care!

He is so cute! My son has one his elbow, and it has recently just started sprouting little tiny hairs. My daughter had a port wine stain. I would talk to a couple different doctors, just because certain birthmarks can be linked to different disorders. Best of luck.
