Page 40 of the December issue of Parents Magazine has an article titled Clearing Up Baby Birthmarks. The picture that accompanies the article is of a beautiful baby, but the baby has no visible birthmarks. The article talks about hemangiomas, and is very short. I am thankful that they are talking about hemangiomas, and hopefully educating the readers of their magazine. But, they should have included a picture of a hemangioma, or a baby that has one. Fully educate the readers.

My daughter has a hemangioma on the bridge of her nose, and we are about to have her 3rd laser treatment. I have had many cruel and harsh encounters with people when I am out with my baby, and I snapped today. What do other parents say to people who have mean or rude comments about their precious children? I feel the urge to protect her, but am at a loss for words. Usually because I am trying not to cry. I feel the urge to educate them about hemangiomas, but also want to tell them how hurtful they are.
