  • Sometimes yes. All belly buttons look different. I believe my daughter's was black other than where it had been connected and it was pink there. My daughter actually still has little black lines on her belly button and she's almost 1. As long as there isn't any bleeding or pus or redness around the site then you should be fine. If you get worried just check with your LO's pedi.
