okay... so I don't know if anybody's ever heard of this but... my hubby and his family have done this for all of their babies. I think it's ridiculous... but it's really important to him. They tape a dime to the baby's belly button to make sure it's an innie... not sure what else it's supposed to do. should I just suck it up and let them do it... or fight with my hubby for idk how long over it. I also have to say that he usually lets me have my say for just about everything else.. so this is obviously really important to him ?!?!?
(they are very clean about it, they don't fish a dirty coin out of their pocket and stick it on with duct tape! )

I've heard that too. I think its a southern thing. A woman I know took a quarter, sterilized it wrapped it in gauze and then taped it to the babies belly button. I mean as long as everything Is clean and you use the cotton medical tape not the plastic stuff, I dont see why not. I was told not to put anything on the babies belly button to just let it dry out on its own. But I've known people that put rubbing alcohol on it to dry it out or band aids on them to keep out germs. I dont know I think not messing with it works wonders lol. But if it wont harm the baby and its that important to him and his family why not?
