Has your toddler boy/girl ever had a hernia?

My daughter is 3 and has a little one on her belly button. She has always had it and claims it doesnt hurt. But my doctor said its up to us if we want it removed or not. I want to do it just so she doesnt grow up with it and have problems. Any advice?

  • My baby has a small umbilical hernia too...most of the time it closes on its own in the first year and they don't do anything for it. It doesn't hurt them. If yours is 3 and it hasn't closed on its own, I wonder if they think it will? I guess I wouldn't do anything unless there is some kind of danger to leaving it alone since it doesn't hurt her.
