My daughter is 6.5mths and has an umbilical hernia. As she is a girl and was born premature there was a greater chance that she'd have one. My doctor is happy to leave it until she is 12mths old before referring us but they may leave her until she is 2yrs old before doing anything. It doesn't cause her any discomfort and it did start to shrink but then seems to have stopped again. Can anyone put my mind at rest that this will go and she won't be having to go through surgery at 1-2yrs old?!
