I've never heard of the quarter part, but my grandma said that when she had her children, the hospital gave mothers "binding belts". They were just thick cotton rags you wrapped around the babies belly so they would have an "innie".

My 3yo daughter has an outie like nothing else. No part of it goes in, at all, and it sticks about a third of an inch out of her tummy. Honestly, I couldn't care less. (in fact, it may keep her from wearing belly-bearing shirts as a teen, and that's ok by me! ) I was told it all depended on how the cut umbilical cord healed. And I'm with We'veBeenHad, if she wants it "corrected" when she is older, that's up to her. We aren't going to do it to her just for looks.
