Thanks for posting such detailed accounts of your experience! Our 10 week old daughter has a NTH and we have been on Propranolol for almost 4 weeks now. There is little decrease, but no growth. The opinions we've gotten on laser are mixed. I'm not sure if maybe it was more appropriate in your case because it wasn't so big when you started. Now, our daughter's covers most of the front of her nose. I'm concerned that laser treatments might cause this entire area to scab and scar over, because the bright red part is so widespread

I'm hopeful from your story, however!
