Today was a hot day in Leeds so we decided to strip Ben down to his diaper. He looked much more comfortable. You might notice his umbilical hernia. Here's the explanation for why they occur.
"While a baby is in the womb, there is an opening in the abdominal wall beneath the navel. As the baby matures, this hole should close as the abdominal muscles merge. In some babies, the muscles don't merge completely and a hole about the size of a fingertip remains."
Ben's hernia started when he was about 5-6 weeks old. It's actually become much smaller and seems to be shrinking. From what I've read, most hernias disappear by the time they're 2 or 3 and sometimes much sooner than that. But it doesn't bother him and he is just the healthiest little boy!
