Default Re: Cafe au lait birthmark

My son has 4 h's and 2 cafe au lait / Mongolian spots.

Joel's Mongolian spots are on his behind, so they are not visible to most people. Dr. Kincannon at ACH is not concerned with them since they have not changed since birth. However, you might want your ped to document VERY well in your child's chart that she has the spots. Joel's look like bruises and our pediatrican was very careful to document them well. Incase we were to ever go to the ER or another doctor, they are often confused with bruises and parents suspected of child abuse/neglect. We had the pediatrician put detailed info about them the size, location and shade in the chart. We also have a few pictures of them as a baseline to notice if there are ever changes in them.
