My little guy has Pink eye :(

We got the drops today after we went to the Pediatrician. Have your kids had it? I used to get it a lot when I was a kid. No school until Monday now.

  • Luckily, my kids have not had that (yet). It would be so frustrating all around as my kiddos are stubborn and would be rubbing despite my pleas for them not to do so. I hope he feels better soon, the poor boy.

  • My son has small openings to his tear ducts and as such cannot empty them like he should and quite often gets infections (not necessarily pink eye) and it sucks. Just keep up on the drops. I found that breastmilk in the eye actually works much better then the drops, but obviously that only works if you are nursing or know someone who is and will share. Good luck!

  • Poor little thing. I picked him up for Kindergarten & he was crying because he didn't want to leave school. When I sent him, his eye was a little red but when I picked him up it looked red as a tomato :( He has no pain but loves school so much he is sad. He can't go back for two full days after he starts the drops.
