Just for fun, I wanted to see how common they are! My son has many. He has one huge one on his forehead shaped like a V, he has a small one on each eyelid, he has one big one on the back of his head and some spots on the back of his neck. He's also got a small red dot on one thigh, and a light brown patch on the other.

He came out decorated! The doctor said the one on his forehead would fade, and it has, but it gets really red if he's playing real hard or laughing or yelling

I have one myself (back of my head and neck), and both my girls have the same one. Actually, most of my family does...lol

ds has one on the back of his head and the v in between his eyes(they called this one an angel's kiss...) so his was hit both coming and going, too :LOL
his angel's kiss still shows up when he's doing something strenuous. it's like a warning light...careful, he might explode!!!!!!

dd has little ones on the back of her head as well as on the top part of the back of her left ear...would this be from an agel's reprimand!??jk of course...they're totally ap in heaven... :LOL

Jett has one on his forehead, between his eyebrows that has faded a lot and has one that's still pretty dark on the back, in the nape of his neck.

My ds has one on his forehead that is reminiscent of "the hand of Saruman" from the movie the Lord of the Rings. Only his is red, not white. He's also got one on the back of his head.. looks like a blob than anything distinguishable.

ds has a small patch of red on his right eye and some on the back of his neck. i wonder who thought of saying the stork brought the baby. i am glad the stork does not bring the baby. i wouldn't trade his birth for anything in the world.

I have them and ds has them. Between the eyes and at the nape of the neck, buried under hair but visible if I wear a ponytail. the dr's told my parents they would fade by the time iwas four, but that was more than twenty years ago that I passed four :LOL

The one between my eyes gets blue if i'm cold, red if I'm mad, and a purply red if i cry. Ds's just stays red

DS has/had a 'V' on his eyelid. I haven't seen it in a while so maybe it went away. It used to turn bright red when he was upset.

My son has one at the nape of his neck. I'd completely forgotten about it (he's 7 next month) until he got his hair cut really short last month and there it was.

My dd has one on the back or her head and one on the back of her neck. The one on her neck is just below the hairline and when she gets upset it turns really red!

All four of my children have stork bites. My oldest two use the one on Marshalls nose to tell him apart from his twin brother Luke. Luke has one in his hair and on his neck.

My DD (8 weeks old) has the classic stork bite version: V on her forehead and another spot on the back of her head/neck area. I think they most always occur as this pair combo... You really can't see the V on her forehead easily unless she strains or is angry. I was told it would fade by age 2. We'll see... She also has a red patch on one of her eyelids...

take care

My Dd has one at the nape of her neck, I think that it will be covered by her hair (once she gets some more). It is not that red unless she is upset or playing/crawling hard
She also has some red on one eyelid.. but no others that I can see..

Rozzie has the V on her forehead, one on the nape of her neck, and one on each eyelid. They have faded since birth but I still think it makes her look like she's wearing eyeshadow.

My two babies have them between their eyes/forehead area. I thought they looked more like hearts.. but after reading the pp's about it being a V...i guess they could be V's.
I think i like them better as hearts.

My daughter has three - one at the nape of her neck and one on each eyelid. She's 12 months old now and they have all faded quite a bit. But the ones on her eyelids do "flare up" when she's angry.

Both of my children have a red mark at the base of their skull in the back (very top of neck), and my son has some red marks on the back of his head. The redness on the neck comes from my DH, MIL, and GFIL. I think it must be genetic, huh?

Both of my kids were born with the classic forehead V and the circular mark at the nape of the neck. DD's was a lot darker than DS's when she was born and even though it has faded a lot you can still see it and she is almost five. When she gets mad is really turns red and DH calls it he "v chip". We were told that they would fade by the time they were two or three. I am pretty sure DS's won't be noticeable at all, but I am pretty sure DD will have hers forever.

My DS was born w/several. A lot of them are on his scalp and so you can't see them unless he gets a short hair cut. He has a very prominent one in between his eyes which has not totally faded. I also have one in the same place. You can really see it if he gets mad or hot. He also has one that traveled down his nose and onto his upper lip and that one has pretty much faded.

I'm curious to know if the new baby will have one. Will find out in a few weeks!

Dd has one on her forehead and one on the nape of her neck. She also has red birthmarks in the small of her back and on her wrist. Hopefully they fade some eventually, because they're really bright right now! (She's 5 months)

Both of my boys have them on their foreheads and on the nape of their necks. It's so funny, my dh always comments about them because neither of us have them. My boys look a lot like dh. My oldest also has a light one over one of his eyes. They are more noticeable when they are crying/upset, but you can def. still see ds1 on his forehead all the time and he's almost five now. I was told they would fade as he got older.

Sarah : , mama to Lucas (8) , Ryan (5) : , Andrew (1yr) , and someone new : due early Dec.

Julian has the V on his forehead, one on his right eye lid, one on the back of his neck, one a little further up on the back of his head and one at the very top of his head.

The forehead one lights up when he's tired/fussy etc..

DD has 3. One on her forehead that takes up 1/3 of it (fromDH's side..they all have one) and 2 on the back of her head...one at the top on the roundest part and one near the base of her skull.

Dd1 has one on the nape of her neck.

Dd2 has the v in between her eyes, one on the nape of her neck, and marks on both eyelids. They were really obvious at birth but they've faded a lot now that she's a year old.

I had no idea that this was so common. Weird...

I had the v on my forehead and it lasted almost until adulthood but as I got older it would really only show when I cried or got upset.

Ds1 had it but very light.

Ds2 has a pretty strong one plus at the nape of his neck.

Neither seemed to have it on the eyelids too like I did.
