  1. Hello and thank you for writing to us on Medimetry.Hope your baby is recovering from bronchiolitis.Umbilical hernia is common in infants and is typically harmless.It usually closes spontaneously at the age of 1 or 2.Do not worry.If anytime you notice that your baby is in pain,the skin there becomes discolored or swollen then you may need to take your baby to a Paediatrician and get him examined.If the umbilical hernia persists beyond the age of 4 years surgery may be needed.Hope this information helped you.Keep me posted on baby's health.Good day!
