Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Bruise on the back of baby's head?

I just found a reddened area on the back of LO's head, maybe a bruise. Could this be caused by baby sleeping on her back? She had just woken from a nap.

  • Is it where the neck and head meet? Could be a birthmark.

  • most likely not a bruise, ds has two on his head, which are very red, and he has a stork bite on his forehead! everybody always thinks their bruises or he hit his head, but he was born with them and the pedi says they should fade in time!

  • Its actually smack in the middle of the back of her head but it looks a lot like the linked picture. Thanks! I'll just keep an eye on it.
