My daughter had one on her eyelid and a large one on the back of her head at birth. The one on her eyelid faded within a month, the one on her head is faded but still there and visible when she's mad.

Yes, my daughter was born with what the dr's called a stork bite. It is on her forehead, between her eyebrows. She is not 15 months and it faded somewhat. I noticed it turned out to be a dry, patchy area too so I took her to the dr. They said to put hydrocortisone and Eucerin creme, but that was only for the dryness. Her dr. said it would probably fade even more by the time she turns two. It has diminished though. Hope that helps.

My 6 month old daughter has one on the back of her neck. It gets bright red when she's having a melt down. I've been told that it'll fade with age.

Yes! My son had a red patch on the back of his neck when he was born. The nurse called it a stork bite and I thought it was the sweetest thing ever. It's much lighter now that he's 15 months but I still know it's there. :) They're nothing to be worried about. I was told that they should fade at about 18 months.

Absolutely....my daughter had one on her forehead between her eyebrows when she was born. It faded and you can only see it now if she is pale and sick or if she cries it tends to stick out. Most stork bites fade and are unoticeable by the childs first birthday.
