Yes it is. You can put alcohol on a q-tip & dab it on the belly button to help dry it up if it bothers you, but it will dry up on its own. Just keep it clean.

A little is fine as long as it's not fresh puss coming out. Be sure to gently dab it with rubbing alcohol at diaper changes. That'll dry it out quicker and keep it clean.

 Peroxide won't dry it up... It may cause some scarring...  Alcohol is best, it disinfects and dries it up.  If you don't have any, then just let it air dry.
