Am I correct in thinking it's African and Asian countries only?

A baby can have one even if they are mixed race, aslong as they have the african/asian race in them too, right?

It's very common among AA and Asian races, but possible for any baby that is not Caucasian. I have seen it frequently in Hispanic infants.

My daughter has a small Mongolian Spot on her lower back and she's mostly Asian. Her Asian-American cousins also have the Mongolian Spots. DD's Mongolian Spot is fading. The doctor thought by the time she's five years old it would be a lot lighter.

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.
