  • call your ped in the morning, sounds like a hernia, they are not uncommon in babies but it needs to be looked at sooner rather than later

  • My dtr had one. You should definitely talk to the pedi about it. I was told that as long as it can be gently pressed back in when baby is relaxed its ok. If it cannot be gently pressed back in, call the pedi right away

  • My son's belly button did the same thing. He is 4 months old. Dr. said no need for concern. It will eventually go back.
