Can a swollen belly be a sign of a dangerous condition?

Yes: If your baby's belly appears larger than normal, they should be examined right away. If they are fussy, the swelling could be a sign of infection or blockage. If not fussy, it could be due to a growth or mass. It could also be due to a less serious but more common condition such as constipation or gas.
