Is the baby’s belly button protruding a umbilical hernia?
The baby’s belly button is protruded, and sometimes it is large and sometimes small, especially when the baby is crying, the umbilical protrusion is more obvious. When the hand is still holding, you can also hear the sound of “Cuckoo” in the small intestine.The upper part is called an umbilical hernia, which is a congenital developmental defect with a good prognosis common in newborns.
Umbilical hernia is mainly because the baby’s abdominal wall muscles are not fully developed and the umbilical ring is not blocked. If the baby is crying, when the abdominal pressure increases, the intestine will protrude from the umbilical ring and form an umbilical hernia.
Female babies are more likely to have umbilical hernias than male babies. Generally speaking, premature babies are more likely to develop umbilical hernias than full-term babies due to weak physical development.
If the baby has an umbilical hernia, parents need not be overly alarmed.
Usually, the mother does not need to dialysis the umbilical part every day to observe whether the intestines run out. As long as you pay attention to it, you can observe the appearance of the umbilical part while changing the diaper or sleeping.
When the baby is more relaxed and the mood is calm, the umbilical bag will sink slightly, just like a full blown balloon will deflate slightly, and the epidermis will become wrinkled. However, when the baby starts to move or cry, the umbilicalThe mini-bags of the Ministry will become more and more full.
In addition, appropriately reduce the chance of increasing abdominal pressure, such as don’t let your baby cry endlessly; treat chronic cough in a timely manner; adjust your baby’s diet so that abdominal distension or constipation does not occur.
If the navel is not prominent, more people with umbilical hernia can heal without treatment.
Under normal circumstances, as the baby grows up, reduces crying, and strengthens the abdominal muscles, the umbilical ring will gradually contract and close. At this time, the kidney capsule will not easily merge in the weak umbilical cord. Therefore, most of the baby’s umbilical veins will heal naturally around one year old, and the prognosis usuallygood.
If you find that your umbilical hernia is getting bigger or it doesn’t heal after prolonged time, ask your doctor for treatment.
In addition, if the baby is suspected of having an incarcerated umbilical hernia, that is, the contents of hypertension cannot be returned to the abdominal cavity, then the baby often has uncomfortable symptoms such as crying, discarding vomiting, and constipation.
When the umbilical hernia is stuck in the umbilical cord for the implantation time, incarceration may occur and it cannot be returned manually. Such a situation requires emergency medical treatment.
Because the intestinal wall is compressed and blood is not flowing smoothly, there is a risk of intestinal dilation and necrosis.
