I've read several posts that seem to have similar stories in a lot of cases.
I have read in numerous things, as well as was told, that prematurity and being Caucasian increase the chances of Hemangioma's forming.

My daughter Brenna was born with only the cavernous hemangioma on her left thigh. But soon wound up with 2 superficial ones as well. We are happy that it is involuting nicely with no complications! And thankfully she has only ever broken it open once! Scared mom to death, but we made it through!

Here are some pics of her hemangioma's
