Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

You can ask your wife to apply NipCare ointment for nipples. The pain could be due to cracks in the nipple. A waxy moisturizer would help in healing of the nipple cracks and soothe the skin over the nipples.

Please attach an image of your daughter's belly button, only after having a look I would be able to comment on.

Brief Answer:
It should heal

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Sorry for the delay in reponding.

There is no active abscess or discharge from the umbilicus.

If there is a active discharge of pus or painfull for the baby on touch, consult a surgeon.

Otherwise it may heal on its own.

Only concern is that it may leave a protruding naval.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Regards,
