Q.

Lump on baby' s tummy

Goodmorning,
I noticed a bulge on my 9 month old baby' s tummy last night (just below the rib cage). I took her for her 9 m check up last week and there was no sign of it then ...
Should I be worried and take her back to the doctor?

Paediatrician

It is difficult to answer your question without being able to see your baby.I am surprised that the lump would appear and then disappear.Your baby may have a hernia.It would be best to ask your paediatrician to see her just to be on the safe side.
