my daughter was born with one on her forehead and eyelids. she is now two, and it has faded a little, but it's still there. The doctor said if it didn't go away by the time she turned two it would most likely stay. Does anyone else have a child with these birthmarks? or had one that has dissapeared?

here is a pic of her as a baby

 

thanks for all your comments and pics. my only reason for thinking of removing it is that i'd hate for her to be teased when she starts school...for those of you who has/had a child with one at what age did it dissapear? i saw a few pics of very similar birthmarks...hers is the v-shaped birthmark on her forehead as well...is this more common than i think it is?

here's a recent pic...you can't really see the birthmark in this pic though because of the flash...you can see it a little in the 2nd though.....

if your child had one would you get it removed?

I don't know why anyone would want to get a birthmark removed unless it was somehow harmful or hindering to the child. I believe children are born to be the way they are and unless there is good reason to change it why tamper with their individuality?

my little girl Elizabeth has stork bites on the back of her head by her neck and my other little girl Sadie had it on her left eyelid... hers went away a little bit. but Elizabeth still has hers.

My nephew had one on his forehead when he was born. He's now five and the only time you can see it is when he's crying or overly excited over something. 

I wouldn't have them removed.  How would they remove them from eyelids anyway?!?!?

My DD had them pretty prominently as well, but they went away.

I have one...it has faded greatly over time and is barely noticeable...but its also on my tummy. My niece has her birthmark on her face and there was some discussion on having it removed because it was pulling on her eye, but is is getting smaller every year and at the age of ten, you can barely see it and she will be able to cover it with make-up.

my daughter had them on her face too. she also has them on the back of her head and nape of her neck. the ones on her face have faded (shes 21 months) but the ones on her neck are still there. when she gets mad or hot they get brighter.

My almost 3 year old still has one on her right eyelid and I love it.
