In brief: Bruises on back

What you are seing most properly are birthmarks called mongolian spots, which are more common in black, oriental and brown babies.
These spots whic may look like bruises usually disappear by the time the baby is 1 year old.Discuss with your pediatrician at the next visit if thats what it is.If the baby was born normal delivery with head first, there is no reason for bruising, and will not last 2 months.

In brief: Likely normal

Especially in babies with darker skin, this can be a normal condition.
It's not actual bruising and is not dangerous.
