  • Yep, needs to see the doc. If you didnt say the belly button thing, I would say add KARO syrup to the bottle. He definitely needs to see a doc though. You cannot diagnose a hernia, could be something else.

  • The hernia is something you should see his doctor about. My son wasn't quite constipated but he still had to strain to go, so his doctor said to try dark Karo syrup and it worked. She also explained to me that he's probably straining so much because babies aren't in control of where their supposed to push.
