Babies keep changing colour in their new born days. Please do not do anything. After sometime everything will change and become steady. Then you can think abut making your baby fair but I can tell you one thing you cannot change much of what God has given. Every child inherits what his her parents and grand parents have had. So it will run in the family. Please do not worry about the colour. Let the child study well and become a good citizen.
Make a paste of creame + Besan (channa daal powder) and a bit of haldi (turmeric) and apply this on the baby daily before bath. I was also a very dark child, but i mom says she used this and I am now wheatish. Also a healthy baby has a shine in face. Try to feed your baby with everything in fruits, make paste out of apple or banana n give the baby. Lime also works very good for some areas which are very dark, like the elbow or the kneep cap.
