But sometimes they do get bigger before they start fading.

My nephew had a small pin size red mark on his forehead and it kept getting bigger. now he is almost three and it just now started to fade.


The OP has also shown in pictures that her babies is getting bigger.

Just saying it can happen (get bigger) and it could stop altogether. Each child is different.

I didnt even notice when he was born he had one, then after I took him home 4 days later I noticed it and it was at his worse then, luckily never got n e bigger. I know some do, and some babys have a itty bitty one when they are born on like their lips and stuff and they end up growing over half their face. Its scary and sad but the common ones like our kids have do go away in a few years. I know DS' pediatrician said it would be gone by the time he turned 7, when he went in at 1 year he asked where it went and he was surprised it was gone so fast. Im sure it will start to fade around 1 or so but its nothing to worry about. DS used to pick at his cause he thought it was dirt or something. LOL never busted it or cause n e problems.

Re: Has anyone seen this kind of birthmark

looks like a strawberry birthmark. They will get larger before they get smaller usually around age 9 is when they start to disappear.

We had one on Abby at birth on her shoulderblade, and it grew and grew in the beginning, but at almost 3 it is totally gone.
