Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation after a burn is normal.

I would give it time before makeing a final judgement.  As long as there is no contour irregularities and it is just a color change, then I would be confident to say that there is a high likelihood that everything will return to normal with some time.  I would save your money and no two year old would tolerate any cosmetic treatment on their nipple.
