PLAC­ING A COIN ON A PRO­TRUD­ING BELLY BUT­TON HELPS IT POP BACK IN

Your Baby & Toddler - - Baby Files -

A pro­trud­ing belly but­ton is usu­ally caused by a de­fect in the wall of your baby’s ab­domen and is also known as an um­bil­i­cal her­nia. It is not due to the doc­tor pulling or cut­ting the cord at birth. The pro­tru­sion should dis­ap­pear by the time your child is one year old.
