Hi, Swapneel,
Thanks for query,
Nothing to worry,gradually this will be alright after he gains weight and recti muscles become strong.
If umbilical hernia is a bit big then put a big coin on umbilicus after inserting hernia in side and put elastic strapping on it,
Keep this for some time like 2-3 weeks and then remove it.
This will help reducing hernia.
Ok and bye.

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, there is nothing to worry about umblical hernia, it can be resolves after 3yrs of life. in 10 %of cases when it presist after 3yrs of life then it needs further treatment. before 3yrs there is no need of any treatment.
