From what I know (and I'm the webmaster, so take my advice with a pinch of salt) I would say that the one that is turning yellowish in the middle IS starting to involute. That is the classic sign. And, no, 8 weeks is not too early for involution... every hemangioma is individual.

For the other, turning blackish with yellow scabbing... could you post a picture, by chance? That one sounds like it might be beginning to ulcerate, but again... what do I know?? If you could post a photo of that, you'd get better feedback from parents who have experience with that very thing.

If you have any troubles posting photos, send one to and I'll post it to this thread for you.

Parents with experience in this will chime in very soon!

And, welcome!
