Does anyone else’s baby have a herniated belly button? Does anyone know of any home remedies to help it, alleviate it, etc? When he was in the hospital, NICU Unit and first came home he was fine and now his belly button is herniated. I’m just so scared because of the size of it. My doctor told me it’s just fine and the hole will heal itself in time and the belly button will go back to normal. She also told me that he doesn’t have any pain with it. I’m not so sure about the pain situation, because when he seems like he’s struggling with gas if I push his belly button in he seems to calm down.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
