Pediatrician, Infectious Diseases 's  Response
Welcome to healthcare magic.
In a small baby one to two month old there are normally some bluish black or greenish black or greyish patches on the body which are called mongolian spots.they are not bruise but a normal finding in infancy and fade with time. But to be sure in your baby , you can consult your pediatrician who can confirm the diagnosis after seeing it.
Thank you
