Default My Daughter has a Cafe au lait birth mark on her face!

Would love to hear if anyone has had success in removing a Cafe au lait birthmark. My daughter Lila is 13 months old and has a Cafe au lait birthmark on her chin. It takes up most of her chin. It was not present at birth & has slowly gotten darker as she has grown older. There are also what appears to be freckles beginning to form inside the mark itself. I am starting to get worried & wonder if anyone has had success with such laser treatments. Just don't know what to do.
Our health nurse said that it would get worse before it got better, which it has & that noone would touch it until she was at least 2 years old.
I am sick of people asking 'what she did to her chin?' or 'have you been eating chocolate?' Please can someone point me in some kind of direction. From reading on this site it sounds like I should book her in to see a Dermatologist. Does anyone have any recommendations in Victoria, Australia?

Kind Regards,
