A few of my children including my 5 m.o. have/ had mongolian spots-- bruise-colored spots at the base of the back ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongolian_spot ). I was told by a pediatrician that these are very common in babies of mixed race, east asian babies, and native american babies.
DD's spot is a little hairy and what's weird is I just noticed it... at 5 months!! She also has a sacral dimple right below it (like a fissure in the skin at the base of her spine) as did my DS. I don't know if it's related to the spots.
If your children did have mongolian spots, when did they go away?
