I was giving my 5 month old son a his daily bath, and noticed a bruise on the top of his bum, lower back, It is quite large, and wasnt there yesterday. I pressed it, and it doesnt seem to bother him. He has a habit of when he is lay on his play mat, pressing his feet on the floor and lifting his bum up and down. he laughs when he is doing it, so I guess it is fun to him, and isnt hurting him. I´m thinking maybe it has come from this? I read somewhere that babies of mixed race can also get a bruise like feature on their lower back, is this true? My son is of mixed race, latin American.
