  • Weird cause BM is suppose to good for eye infections you wouldnt think it would cause one but if it is like that tomorrow I would take him in to get some eye drops for a eye infection. It may clear up on its own. Good luck

  • I had that happen where it accidentally "squirted" out. I don't remember there being any discharge from eye though. I just wiped it right away

  • The same thing happened to my little girl when she was that age. It's totally normal because a lot of times their tear ducts aren't completely formed. Just take a warm washcloth to it a couple times a day. Hold it there for a bit if he will let you. It should get better after a couple of days, if it doesn't then definitely call your pediatrician.
