My daughter has had a belly button hernia since she was born. Her former pediatrican told us that she would have to have surgery to remove it if it didn't go away on it's own by the time she turns three. Well, she's two now and I've noticed she's been grabbing it a lot. She'll come up to me grabbing it and making a whimpering noise. So I'm assuming it hurts or is at least sore. Her new pediatrican said it looks normal and if it's smaller than it was before, he's not concerned about it. It protrudes out when she stands up and I'm just worried that something's wrong. Her having surgery scares me to death. Anyone else go through this with their children?
