      It is a remnant of where your umbilical chord was attached to you when you were in the uterus.It provided you with oxygen and nutrition.

      Exactly as Bernard said! The umbilical cord attached you to the placenta and allowed oxygen and nutrition to travel to you from your Mum!

      Bernard and Sonia have got it down! Bellybuttons are a type of scar tissue. Whether you have an innie or an outie depends on how the scar tissue forms.
