  • First I would make a call to her Pediatrician ASAP. She has a Pediatrician, Right? In the mean time just put warm water on a soft cloth & clean gently.

  • By any chance, are you breastfeeding? If so, I know this might sound silly, but the antibiotic properties in breastmilk are REALLY beneficial. Just put a couple of drops in each eye and follow up with the pediatrician.

  • ABeaverhausen is absolutely correct. Breastmilk can really help this. But a call to your pediatrician won't hurt

  • Beaver is right, breast milk dropped in her eyes. I've used it on all of my kids when they were younger and had pink eye

  • I would try a warm wet washcloth. Sounds like a clogged tear duct.

  • I was going to suggest breastmilk, too. I wouldn't want to let a baby that young go without medical care in case it is something more serious, though!

  • Why would you have to go to the hospital? Going by your previous posts, with as many health issues as she's having already, I'd get her to the doctor asap.
