Hi Tiffany -

My son has a very different type of hemangioma so I'm not sure if our experience applies to your daughter at all, but we did find that his hemangioma had two periods of growth with a slower phase between them. His grew rapidly between one month and three months, slowed down again and then grew rapidly starting at about 5 or 6 months until we had it treated with oral steroids at seven months.

Cheers,
Liz
