Does anyone have a child with an angel kiss on their eyelid? If so did it fade?

These birthmarks are harmless and often barely noticeable. An angel’s kiss usually fades by the time a child is two; a stork bite may never completely disappear, but it’s usually light or hidden by hair. Occasionally the only time these birthmarks are noticipable is when the child cries or strains.
An angel’s kiss that doesn’t fade may be lightened with laser therapy.

My son had them on both eyelids fore head , nose and lip. He looked pretty pathetic when he was born. They were so dark, almost a purple. Now at three, the ones on the eyelids are gone and the other ones are barely noticeable. When he cries they come out. Don't worry about it they will fade

My youngest girl did on both eyelids at birth. She's 4 1/2 months now and they have mostly faded. She has a bit of a strawberry mark underneath the hairline at the base of her neck too and that has faded a little but is still quite visible if you look for it.

My son has one on his forhead quite raised and also one on his ribs (exactly the same spot as mine before mine faded completely when i was about 13) I Hope the one on his forhead goes, if not its right on his hairline so his hair should cover it. He is just over 5 months old.

Mostly they go away by the time they turn 2 or 3. My daughter had one (on her leg though) but it was really raised up at first. Before she turned 2 it was almost all gone and now you can only see it if you know right where it is and are looking for it :-) If by chance, it stays red longer than that, you be sure to tell her how special she is because God didn't kiss everyone sooo hard that it stayed :-) So he must love her EXTRA

My son has one on his forehead and he is 8 months old and it is still there it has lightened up some but still very noticable. When he was born the doctor said it would be gone within a few months but it's not. I hope it goes away soon, I don't want him to get teased about it either. My friends daughter had one on her eyelid and it went away, not sure at what age though, she is now 8. I had one on my chest when i was a kid that didn't go away till i was about 5 and i have one on the side of my stomach that has never gone away. I think most of them wind up fading, I hope! Best wishes!

My daughter just turned 6 months and has one the size of my thumb-tip on her forehead which is still there, but the little one she had on the tip of her nose when she was born is gone. I've been wondering the same as you because I was always told it would fade by 6 months.
