Ask your question
  • It could be a hernia, but if you are worried get bub to the doctors. They will have proper answers. Good luck!


  • Go back to your GP or paeditician for a checkup if concerned as they will do examine your baby .


  • Always check with your GP; if worried.


  • Sounds like an umbilical hernia. Definitely needs to see GP


  • I hope it is not hernia but must see GP to confirm


  • there are some good comments here


  • go to the doctors as it could be a hernia,


  • Get this checked out as it could be a hernia.


  • My daughter has this. It was a umbilical hernia. Go chat to your gp about monitoring it and your options . If it doesn’t cause bub any discomfort it’s not a big issue just a small operation to fix it up but defiantly get onto it as I am still waiting to the hospital to perform said operation and as a toddler other kids are noticing my daughters belly button. She is to young to understand what they say and the questions they ask but stil can’t wait for it
    To be fixed up.


  • a question best left for your gp.


  • I would definitely take bubs to the doctors for a check up in case its a hernia


  • it could be a hernia, some babies get small ones in the tummies because their stomach muscles are weak. A hernia happens when a section of intestine protrudes through a weakness in the stomach muscles. A soft bulge is seen underneath the skin where the hernia has occurred. In some cases they can be serious so I would book a appointment with you gp and get him checked out. My older brother had one under his belly button and he had to have a small operation to close the muscle up.


  • It Might Be Best To Take Her To The Doctors To Get Checked Out
