Tummy question.

This may sound odd, but I have noticed after my son eats and sometimes for a while after it looks like the left side of his tummy bulges out more than the right side. Could this just be caused from a full belly? I have only noticed it after he has a bottle.

  • the only thing i can think of, that I know bulges, especially lower abdomen, would be a hernia...but, i would just ask your pediatrician to look at him. ..because I don't know what would cause it after a feeding...??/ Sorry, can't help. Just take him to the doctors.

  • He was just evaluated at his checkup on wednesday and the doc said that he is in great health and that he had no concerens. I just wasnt sure if it would be from a full tummy, or if anyone else had ever noticed it on their baby.
