are you still there?
I know how you are feeling
one of my kids had one months
these do go away
but you don't want to push the hernia inside
the baby's skin is very delicate- this will not help it resolve faster
what are the possible dangers of doing this?
and it can cause irritation of the skin which may lead to infection
as well, as their abdomens are so small, it could interfere with digestion by pressing on the abdominal contents
my husbands mother was a midwife many years ago and she suggested that this should be the course of action to strengthen the muscles.
no, that is NOT correct
and that will not strengthen muscles
babies are floppy
they gain strength over time
reducing a hernia is not going to hasten this and will do much more harm than good
I'm just asking my husband to have a look at what you have written. Were both very concerned.
did I provide you with excellent service?
Our GP has sent off a referral local pediatric consultant to view our son second opinion. The hernia doesn't seem to be causing him any problems, the GP pushed it in but needed to use a little force. He's passing stools as normal, no redness, tenderness or swelling and also passing wind and feeding. He is a little more vomity than usual but that's all.
then in that case you DEFINITELY don't want to put it in
yes thank you excellent service.
you are welcome.
hang in there
90% will resolve on their own in 6 months
but some require repair- but you should not be reducing it on your own
keep me posted!
you can always post back here- even months later :-)
Oh great, thanks alot!
enjoy your baby!
I am and will-thank you.
