Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
1 year old baby
Umbilical hernias are quite common. You can give a baby tummy time It is safe and generally pain free for them to lie on their tummies. If baby cries while giving tummy time then u should not give. But in most cases it is painless . Umbilical hernia goes on itself after 6 months
yes it does. also as your baby grows it will reduce.

my son had umbilical hernia since he was born..I gave him more of tummy time and he doesnt have it anymore..he is 2.5 months old nos
it is good to give some tummy time daily. dont worry about umbilical hernia, it will go away when baby starts to turn over and crawl. it is very common...
Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa
Umbilical hernias usually close on their own before a baby is 1 year old...
and tummy time give strength to tummy muscles too... but if baby cooperates then thats fine.. if not then decrease tummy time...
Hi @Logeshwari, Tummy time would mainly strengthen the neck , shoulder or back muscles and may not be helpful in resolution of umbilical hernia . But nevertheless tummy time has its own benefits of relieving the baby of the gassy tummy and prevents colic . Umbilical hernia normally resolves on its own by about 2 years of age without any intervention. - as answered by Dr Gorika Bansal
