My 2month old has got a red spot at the back of her head, it's not a birth mark cause its moving upward as she grows. Now my fear is that when she cries she bends her head as if it's irritating her. Has anyone went through the same experience?

I did ask a Paediatrician about it & he said that it was normal it will fade away in time, but now my mother-in-law & everybody else that know got freaked out when they saw it. They say its dangerous, if not treated it can be fatal. They say that it can be treated with Lennon medicine. I listened to the Dr &did'nt do anything about it, instead i was accused of trying to murder my own child, i dont kno wat 2do anymore.

first of all if the doctor is not concerned than you shouldnt be...if it hurts her than yes call the doctor and that is not normal..my son had 3 stork bits or angel kisses whatever you want to call them one on the back of his neck that got bigger as he did and started to fade when he turned one one on his back that did the same thing and one right between his eyes on his forehead (it looked like the Van Halen symbol) they did get bigger because he got bigger and they fadded away once he turned 1 and now he is 3 and nothing so if you are really worried take her back but if it is not bothering her wait and see......

are u sure its the mark irrating her. Maybe its her ears when she cries or her head hurts. My kids all had different types of marks that faded and some didnt. One moved up to the top of her head as he got bigger. He is ten now and u cant see it at all. My two year olds have them at the back of their necks and on their eyes and in between there eyebrows, one on the nose to which is still purple. They are slowly fading--it takes a few years for the marks to dissappear. You can research the marks on the net--look for stork bites and strawberry birthmarks, they are two different kinds of red marks. I would worry if the mark gets bigger and darker as thats a different kinda mark. Listen to your doc. People are still freaked out by my kids marks and treats them like they are a bad rash or a skin disease. Its not--they are like little bruised from being in the womb and being delivered

If you're really worried get a second opinion, tell them your fears and what others say, maybe it will make them think of something they haven't thought of. If your second opinion doesn't think it's anything to worry about either then don't worry. your m-i-l is always going to think she knows everything. As for people telling you you're a bad mom or trying to "murder" your child (personally I would go off) they have no business saying anything like that. Your asking questions, you went to the dr. your are doing the right things and these people have no business say horrible stuff like that. being a mom and worrying constantly yourself is bad enough, unless they live in your home day after day they have no space to talk. your a great mom, because you care, keep up the good work.

Are you sure it's not just a stork bite? Lots of babies have them and they go away on their own but shouldn't be irritating. But I agree with pp, get it checked out if you are worried - can't hurt.

I would get the dr to look at it.. If it is that concerning to you and it looks as though it hurts her.. get a porfesional to look at..
