    My son ended up with a umbilical hernia around 2 months it freaked me out, after the fact that I almost lost him at birth..the doctors were really worried about it, It was huge purple and blue and some black. they said if it did not dissappear by age 1 then he would need surgery, they also told me to keep it pushed in with a cotton ball and like cardboard cause if it ruptured then he would bleed to death in like 8 hours…I was scared for the next 8 months..it did go away finally on its on before he was 1. I had some close incounters of it bursting due to him having colic…that added more pressure to it…And he was not a primee..he was a week early..and almost 8lbs..

    An umbilical hernia usually appears in the belly button area during the first months of a baby’s life. It can increase in size when the baby cries or has a bowel movement, which causes the pressure. This hernia is usually not painful or sensitive to touch.
