With our daughter, as with most, he said, the hernia went away on its own.
I had the same thing, and grew out of it as well. My daughter also spent her first 5 or 7 years with an outie for the same reason, and hers went away too. The Dr. said if it didn't, we could operate but it would be purely cosmetic. I wasn't about to do that; if she had stayed an outie and wanted surgery later that would be her own decision.
