What is the cause of black patches on thighs and legs?

Hi, my baby has black patches on her upper thigh and legs... My Ped said its birthmarks and will blend more in to the skin as she gets bigger. Now she's 7 months and I've noticed they have increased and more darker... They are not Mongolian spots... I'm really worried, can I do anything to get rid of it.
