    Default Weird Belly Button...

    ok so i didnt know where else to put this... and this is the forum im always in, soooo this is where im putting it.

    my son (8 1/2 months old) has this crazy belly button that sticks out real far. and you can see where it sealed off and everything. it sticks out 90% of the time and i always push it back in and it pops back out. its hard sometimes (mainly when he is standing or crying or something like that). any one know if this is normal for some babies? it just looks more intense than an "outie"

    i havent taken him to the dr about it because everyone acts like its no big deal and that it is just a weird looking belly button. but ive started to get concerned that maybe he has a hernia or something else wrong. he never acts like it hurts or anything so i dont know...

    i tried to put a picture of it up here but it was too big and i cant make it smaller on my computer because my program expired

    I would have a pedi look at it, but it sounds like a simple herniated belly button. Most resolve on their own, my DS1 has one.

    Does it look like this?



    Nolan had that and it has already resolved itself. The doc said that it can take up to two years but it doesn't bother them at all.

    yeah its similar to that. im trying to put a picture up from my facebook but i dont know if it will work. the outie part is smaller than that. its only the belly button part, nothing around it. i made an appt with his pedi for tomorrow.

    Hijacking the thread-do you have a photobucket account?? that will make it easier to post pics, you download them there and it gives you the [IMG] link you need to post pics on the forum!

    i forgot about photobucket... thanks!

    i went ahead and put the facebook link up... but idk if it will work for everyone else. i clicked on it and i can see it, but i dont know if its because the picture is saved to my computer and i was signed in to facebook. if anyone can/cant see it let me know (just so i know if it worked or not)

    thanks!
