it''s called fontale in medical terms....in Zulu is called ibala/inyoni. if in teh family history there is migraine,then you must be worried. have your baby took out the gren stools on the first week when he was born,if not u must be worried. pls consult with older woman in your family, they will be a great help

As far as I know this is normal...Go through your baby books, there''s a name for this...But you don''t have to be worried. My oldest son had it on his lower back, he is 7 yr old now and it''s starting to get lighter.
