I have a six month old and when she cries she gets a big lump in her forehead. I heard it was a muscle thing too, but it may not ever go away.

It could be a hernia, IDK:( But I do know that kids/babies can get them and it doesnt have to be in the belly button area to be a hernia. Have it checked out either way.........I hope it nothing...............Keep us posted!!

My friends little biy breaks out bad when he cries. I would not worry too much unless it seems to bother him. Also I would mention it to the ped and see what there professional oppinion is! Good Luck
