    Hey chick,

    Yes that does sound like an umbilical hernia. My Lo has one, its getting smaller but its still very visible. The advice Ive been given from my GP and Hv, is to ensure you can press it in and it makes that squidgy noise, and just to keep an eye on it. They don't like to do surgery and apparently they go of there own accord... I'm still waiting for that. It doesn't cause my lo any probs and never has, and too be honest I don't even think about it any more. But it used to really bother/worry me xxxxx

    Hmmm I had an op on my belly button when I was a baby and didn't give it much thought but maybe I had one. Going to ask my mum now lol.

    Good luck O! Did they not say anything at his 6 week appt?

    Hey chick,
    Yes that's exactly what my LO's looked like. Looking at your photo its made me realize how much my LOs has gone down xxx
    Def show you GP/ Hv just so they are aware that your LO has one xxxx

    Your welcome chick,

    Yes I soooo used to worry about it, and it used to freak me out as-well. Esp when you push it in and it makes that funny sound. I showed my Hv and she said I had to show the Dr. He gave me advice on them and told me how to check that is OK etc xxxxxxx

    J had this when he was a baby, it stuck out like a little chimney pot I was worried sick and the health visitor told me not to let him cry, because that was making it worse apparently .. made a rod for my own back I can tell you, his hernia went away eventually and I still go running when he cries.. he's 10 now! And I wish I'd not taken her so literally :( x
