Default Herniated belly button

Hi Ladies,

hope you are all fine, first time to be in the mother's room. my twin girls are 6 months 3 weeks but one of them has her belly button bulging sometimes.

she doesnt seem to be in pain but what does a mother do? the Doctor says it might go away once her belly button muscles are strong enough,otherwise i will have to wait until she is about 3 years old and see if surgery will be necessary. Has anyone else 's baby had this? what did you do? should i just wait for the next three years or is it 2years 6 months?

Hey Promise, I would listen to your doctor's advise - it really is true

Saying that, however - I had the same with Caitlin, also a belly button that stuck out. I had my gran tell me to put a big coin on it, and wrap it up with bandage really tight for a couple of days, so I followed that "old wives tale" for a bout a week. It did bring it down completely, and she did not need an op
