I can't thank both of you enough. It first appeared when she was 1 week and and is now a little over 5 weeks with no changes at all. I love my pediatrician but all he said was it looks like a hemangioma and it will get worse before it gets better and left it at that. Then I came home and turned to google for hours on end and turned myself into a nervous wreck. It is so nice to find a resource like this to ease my mind or at least get guidance if need be. I keep reading that most change rapidly in the beginning and hers has yet to do anything so praying that is the case. I admire all moms out there that have to deal with this for their poor little ones. Thanks again for answering my questions. Here's to hoping my pediatrician was wrong
