If my baby has a lot of big, light brown spots on her body, should I be worried?

Ask your doctor: Light brown discoloration of the skin is very common. These may be "cafe au lait" birthmarks. These are usually normal, but depending on the size, number and distribution of the spots, your doctor may wish to do more testing. Multiple spots can sometimes be associated with an inherited condition called "neurofibromatosis". See your baby's doctor for more information.
