Your umbilical cord is cut off several inches away from your belly a a baby. So we have actually had an outtie belly button once in our lives. However, the remaining bit then naturally fall off leaving you with with either an inn or an outtie.
It's the way that the umbilical chord is cut, I have heard that if you have an outtie that means that the nurse cut it wrong. Though I'm not sure how true that is.
Well looks like everyone before me has got this question covered, so I'll just say this, I love my innie bellybutton. ♥ U can't really pierce outties. lol.
outties always looked gross to me. but if you get punched there they always get the advantage to say "not my gum drop...button!"
There is no actual evidence for it, but I can tell you that it has absolutely nothing to do with the way the cord was cut..
your umbilical cord is cut different when you were a baby. one way is for an innie other outtie
It depends on the way the umbilical cord was cut when you were born.
