Umbilical Hernias

  • Has anyone here had a baby with an umbilical hernia?  I have a silly question...did you little one have an "outie" after the hernia started closing up?  Its not really important to me that he have an "innie" but I was just curious!

  • You really can't predict whether a baby who has had an umbilical hernia will have an "innie" or an "outie." It all depends on the surgery and how your child heals. Most of the children I have seen have resulted with outies.
