Freaking out after dd's 2 month check up!!! **ETA**
My dd went for her 2 month checkup today. Her ped said she's small (10 pounds, 23.5 inches long). The part that has me freaking out is the dr's concern over her birthmarks. She has several "cafe au lait" spots (they are areas of darker pigmentation) all over her body, some are rather large. She said we may have to take her for genetic testing to rule out neurofibromatosis, which can cause developmental and/or cognitive delays. We don't have a family history, but it can be caused by a genetic mutation. I should have never googled it because now I'm really worried!!

Oh my goodness, thank you ladies SO much for your kind words, prayers and support! I appreciate them all. To answer some questions, these are not mongolian spots and DD is in the upper 10% for weight and 75% for length. She has to have a total of 6 spots over 1 centimeter across to be tested and right now she has 5 large ones and lots of tiny ones. We are going to monitor them until her 4 mo check up. Her ped knew she had really freaked me out and I think she felt guilty, but I appreciate her being so thorough. I am standing in faith that all she has is some crazy birthmarks...and staying OFF of google! Regardless, she's my beautiful, perfect, sweet baby girl!
