A baby having blue bruises on their bottom is really normal, I've seen them on many babies.

He was 6 months old and had a bruise on his face near his eye. When I came home from work at 11pm. He was in his crib and had one of his shoes in his hand. At first I assumed he pulled the shoe off and smacked himself in the face. He would not stop crying throughout the night. By 3 am I took him to the hospital and that's when they took him. He had a bruise on his torso also which I did not know about prior to going to the hospital.

The night before he spent at his father's house. His father dropped him off at my house to my sister, who was living with me, around 3pm. I would have never dreamed in a million years that either were capable of hurting him. I never saw any signs of them losing their tempers or anything of the sort with him.

Here's the thing though, he also had mongolian marks. None of these were even looked at as bruises. They were not recorded as possible abuse marks.


I was never arrested for it but I was charged. I had to show up for court 2 days after. That might simply have to do with the different countries we live in and how they handle it. One main reason they were unable to say it was me was the fact I had not seen my son for 24 hours.

Well, my son has got Mongolian spots. We noticed them short after his birth and he still has them at 18 months. We are European (I'm Italian my husband is Greek) and all of the ancestors we know of were European. But you never know of the mixes that occur in time! Our pedriatrician gave absolutely no notice to them, she just told me they are called Mongolian spots but she wasn't surprised in the least nor did she ask me if the baby had fallen or whatever...so I thought it was a very common thing for her to see. therefore I was really shocked reading what you're having to go through. And they really look like bruises! When my mum first saw them she was scared and asked me what had happened to the boy! Only thing I don't know if they can appear and disappear so quickly. I can only tell you that sometimes I find they look more evident and large, sometimes less. I don't think you can have dressed her in clothes so tight as to leave bruises on her. Try to hear as many pediatricians as possible, if they aren't Mongolian spots they may have seen some similar cases.
I hope this all ends soon and well, let us know.

Its horrible what some parents have to go thought for something they haven done.They must see that our child was never abused,i guess they just trying to find out if she is safe with us its shame that this process can take such a long time :(

My daughter has a birth mark on her upper arm. It looks like someone grabbed her, and left finger print marks. Our Doctor question us as well. Luckily, he realized that they never went away. It was just a birthmark. She's 27 and their still there. I wish u and your husband the best of luck.

Nothing is 100%. Insane people can actually pass them because they actually believe the lie. People will say they are not admissible in court. This is not true.

The way they work is basically when asked a question if you lie your brain goes through a process that makes it work harder than telling a truth. The truth is easy for your brain. I have never heard of any cases where the person was telling the truth and it came out wrong, unless there were certain drugs involved such as Meth.

Basically many U.S. Government offices uses them. If you want to go up in the ranks you must submit to one. If they were that inaccurate why would they be used to determine who to trust?

It took me almost 6 months to get my son back. The lie detector actually sped up that process. They really believed it was me. I asked the courts to give me one and they did. It came back truthful and I had my son back within the month.

They are called mongolian birthmarks. I almost got Child Services called on me as well but I learned From My midwife To make sure it was documented every time i see The doctor. Even white babies can have them, its just not as common. Good luck.

Blue birthmarks are normal for some kids my son had them when he was born but I would think a hospital would know the difference between bruises and a birthmark.

I would think that if you took your baby in soon as you noticed them that they would still be there 4 weeks later without changing the way a bruise does. They might have disappeared but not gone through the changes that a bruise does.

I know it is horrible to think about, but have you considered maybe your husband is responsible? Have they given you a lie detector yet? If not when you go to court ask for one and take it. Your husband needs to do the same. Anyone who had contact with the baby in the week leading up to this needs to be tested also.

My son had child abuse signs and was removed from me. It is a long process to prove yourself innocent. Do what they say when they say. If they tell you to find a new place to live, do it. Fighting them on what the judge wants isn't going to get you anywhere. In the end, I do not know who abused my son. This was 13 years ago. The people who refused to take a lie detector are no longer in my or his life. My sister and his father both refused. He has never seen either again. It doesn't matter how much it hurts me to lose people I love, he was more important. Please remember that.

You can not be sure no one hurt the child. You can know you didn't but that is all you can swear to. You never know what others are capable of.

Hmmm, this is very interesting. Those blue marks are on all Asian babies. I'm Asian and was born with it but it goes away after several months. Maybe you or your husband bloodline has Mongolian genes. Hope this helps.

I know for 100% that no one abuse our child,thats for sure.But like i said these bruises disapear like in 6days and im not sure if mongolian spots can go away in so sort time?does anyone think it could have been becouse of her tight clothes(cous she is growing so fast that most of her 0-3month clothes are too small,and she was only 7weeks when we sow bruises.i left her all day with these clothes,but i have no idea if this could cous her to bruise like this)but i saw that she cant stretch her legs properly so i said to my self from tomorrow i will get rid of all 0-3m.clothes away,but maybe it was to late.please let me know if you have any situation like mine.sorry about my writing,thanks

My daughter has a light one on her tailbone. I never noticed it until she was about a year old. There is a name for it but I can't remember. It's totally harmless and looks like big bruises in some kids. Not child abuse!
