giving tummy time will cure umbilical herinia for my 2 nd half month old baby?? opinions please

Archana Bhosale

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

Prithvi Balaji

yes it does. also as your baby grows it will reduce.

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
