belly button sticks out

My 6 week old baby's belly button sticks out and swollen. When I gently push it in, it sounds and feels like it has fluid in it? Is this normal. Thanx

It might be an umbilical hernia, which is not uncommon. However, it cannot be diagnosed without a physical exam, so I would mention it to your pediatrician at your next visit. He or she needs to feel the belly button, determine if it is a hernia, and if so find out what size it is. Small ones can close on their own, larger ones sometimes need help.

Umbilical hernia?


Most likely it is an umbilical hernia. If he is a baby it is very common and may improve by itself. Otherwise the only way ro repair them is with surgery. In any case show it to the Pediatrician.

Is a protruding belly button when he sticks his belly out considered a hernia?

Sure Sounds Like One


What you are describing sounds like an umbilical hernia. If small and w/o symptoms, these may be rx'd conservatively. Otherwise, simple outpatient surgery can fix the problem. I recommend that you see a hernia surgeon.

Sounds like you are describing an umbilical hernia as bloating in response to eating. Some evaluation into the cause of your bloating is warranted such as food intolerance (lactose, etc). Also if the hernia is bothersome you can consider surgical repair

Perhaps you have a small hernia called an umbilical hernia that sometimes develops. Usually it is not a major concern. Discuss it with your doctor on your next visit.

Navel


The navel is a scar where the umbilical cord was once attached. Around 90% of people have a depression (innie) & about 10% have a protrusion (outie). It is reported that a protruding navel develops because of more abundant skin remaining after the umbilical cord is separated. If you have a new or large protrusion - that could be an umbilical hernia which would merit medical evaluation.
