Umbilical hernia is a common and typically harmless condition. When I asked his doctor about it, he told me that most of umbilical hernias close by themselves by age 1, but some might take longer. If it isn't closed by age three, to avoid complications, surgical repair would need to happen.

If you suspect your child has one, talk to his/her pediatrician. Seek emergency care if: the child seems to be in pain, begins to vomit, and/or the bulge becomes tender, swollen or discolored.
