Hi Everyone,
I hadn't checked on here since last year as didn't think I'd had any replies...well today I've been amazed! Wish I checked sooner! Congratulations to everyone on the births of your gorgeous babies. Thanks so much for putting the photos on. I can now tell you that at nearly 9 months of age, my son's birthmarks have also faded considerably. So much so that at his 6 month dermatology appointment, his consultant was quite amazed. Even the marks on the back of his head - which apparently don't usually change, have faded a lot. Initially they were dark purple but now they are pale pink. The marks on his face still come and go depending on if he is hot/cold/crying. But generally when he is happy and settled the difference is remarkable and sometimes you can barely see them at all. I'll try to put some pictures on but it's not working at the moment because the files are too large, I'll re-adjust them and try again later. Best wishes to everyone...

If you can't post pics, email them as an attachment to contact@birthmark.org and I'll resize and post them!

Thanks for the update! Glad you're well!

Wow! Thank you very much, the pictures helped me alot. My baby is five days old with very prominent angel kisses over the eyelids, on the forhead, nose and upper lip. The doctor told me they werent port wine but I couldn't help but worry since the whole left eyelid was covered. I feel much better now, but my heart goes out to all those babies who are born with permenant marks and will face the challenges typical of that situation. It is heartbreaking, thanks jenny

Hi Jenny, congratulations on the birth of your baby! I'm so glad you found the photos helpful, I remember well how anxious and upset I was in those first few days and weeks after my son was born. All I can say is please do take reassurance from the photos and be sure to enjoy your little one! I really regret that so much of my time was consumed with worry about my son when he was newborn - they don't stay small for long and you have to cherish every moment! My son is fast approaching his 1st birthday and his birthmarks continue to fade (at some point I will update with some new photos). I feel very lucky that his marks are a type that fade of their own accord and that they do not cause him any discomfort, and like you my heart goes out to those that are not as fortunate. All the best to you x
