I am white and my fiance is mexican. Our beautiful son has an olive complexion but around his lower back, all over his little rump, and on his upper thigh, he has mongolian spots. I asked his doctor about it and he said that they appear on kids with mainly asian, hispanic backgrounds and that they eventually fade down or grow smaller as the kids get older. I'm not really worried about how the spots look or anything but I'm worried about when he goes to school and teachers will think that they are bruises. What has everyone been doing about this? Like I was thinking of asking the doctor for a note to explain that the marks are mongloian spots.
