My DD is one and she had a belly that is really out or proportion to the rest of her body. She looks like she had a baby bump! Does anyone else know anything about it? And should I go to the docs. She's not in any pain and is eating okay.

I read somewhere (on here maybe?) that at that age the kidneys are much bigger and push the stomach out?
My DD is 14m and also has a large tummy.....

My DD just turned two and she is really dainty everywhere except for her huge belly. Looks exactly like a baby bump like you said. My GP said it was because a baby's abdo muscles aren't thick or strong enough to hold all the organs in yet. Quite normal apparently smile

Is she weeing ok?

They're meant to look like that. Too many organs in a tiny body. Unless it's misshapen or rock hard I wouldn't worry.

My 14 month dd2 old has a very cute huge tummy that rivals my 6.5 month pregnant one!
