my DD had one, and every monthince it has improved. she was 6 weeks when i noticed it and it got bigger before it improved. they do not hurt (unless the bowel gets stuck, but then your DC would seem to be in pain and be vomiting) when they cry the hernia will be more pronounced but You should be able to reduce it easily (push it back in and it will make the squishy sound) 95 % resolve on there own by age 2. and the rest can be surgical repaired. My pedi said she has only had two patients who required repair and those were siblings.
i just had DD wear onsies so it wouldn't be so noticable.
HollyLuv:When she strains her belly button pops half out and when I push it back in it makes a squishing noise, did that happen with your LO Rach03k? I just noticed it tonight and since she has been fussy this week I wonder if they are related and if I should take her to the emergency? I am probably overreacting since I didn't even see it until now.
Yup, his did the same thing. I wouldn't take her to the ER, but if you're concerned you might call the pedi or something.
DS used to have a huge one, comically huge, lol. It's just lately started to go back in on it's own, it's almost gone now.
