In brief: Please see below.
The superficial capillary hemangioma ('strawberry hemangioma') can be there at birth or appear in the first few months.
It initially grows faster than the baby, then at the same rate, then slower;usually it starts to shrink in late infancy. It resolves in 90% of kids by 9 years old. There can, however, be residual skin changes.

Most resolve by the time the child starts to school. But in the first year of life will likely get bigger before smaller. There are therapies and even a few meds like propranolol that can be used for ones that limit body function, like large ones around the eye.
