  • Call your doctor. Itcould just be a clogged tear duct that has gotten infected (my son had this at three weeks). You doctor can prescribe an antibiotic ointment for the eye.

  • If its not pink eye it could be a clogged duct. Clogged ducts get gross gooey yellow crap that gets crusty. BM helps clogged ducts too it might take a while.

  • Pink eye is all part of a cold. Use a warm wet cloth to gently clean the goop from her eye. It just takes time for it to go away. As with any other cold virus, there is NO "cure".

    Call your pediatrician, though. They may still want to take a look at her to make sure it's pink eye and not the aforementioned clogged duct.
