Default Angel kiss or port wine stain or something else?

Hi all - my two week old little girl was born with four birthmarks running up her forehead. The pediatricians I've seen have all given me a different response on what they could be, ranging from angel kisses to port wine stains. If they're port wine stains, that's a bit more concerning I think? I feel like angel kisses are normally in the center of the forehead, so really not sure what these are. They do fade when pressed. If you wouldn't mind looking at the pics, has anyone seen anything similar on their child?

Hi there! She is so adorable! You can email the other photos to Missy at
contact@birthmark.org
She can upload them for you. For me, it's so hard to tell from the pictures- I think a portwine stain might be bigger/more extensive than that but I'm not an expert. Perhaps you could also email your photos to Dr. Levitin (find the Ask the Experts page) and he could give you his opinion. He is the expert!!! Good luck! Enjoy the baby!

Thank you Shannon! I will email her tonight. I also emailed Dr Levitin, although it was only letting me send one photo. Should I try to send a message again?
