Hi! My 3 month old daughter has extensive port wine stain (PWS) on her right extremities (whole right arms, legs, butt, a small patch on her chest and a small patch on her back). Luckily, none on her face. Anyway, pedia derma here in Canada refused to treat her as she is still too young and that PWS on the extremeties are resistant to pulse dye laser. Hearing that really made my heart break. I know it's just aesthetic but we still want to atleast try to do everything we can to help her.

Any moms here who had their baby's treated? Would you recommend it to be done sooner or later? Was the laser successful? Is it expensive? Is there a possibility for port wine stain to "lighten" on its own? Help any info will be a big help for me.
