My dd had a red smudge in the corner of her eye when she was born. I think the worry is they sometimes turn into strawberry birth marks which can be quite big. Dd's faded though after a month or so and is now gone completely.
My mum says I have one in the nape of my neck, but I've never seen it
My DD developed a small, round "strawberry" birth mark, on the top of her leg when she was about a week old. My GP said it would probably disappear by the time DD is 2. It's already started fading (she's 7 months old). We've taken loads of photos of it - I think it's lovely!
All very positive remarks! the darl brown one is flat. the gp hasnt really commented,said the red one was unusual as sometimes its white and sometimes purple!!!! HV said if it bothered us maybe we could have it looked at. He is 8 months old ao will see how it develops!
