  • It could be an infection. The doctor will probably want to see her to be sure, and will probably prescribe her some eye drops.

  • She may have a upper resperatory infection. It could be pink eye, but you didn't say her eyes are red. The green stuff in her eyes means she has some kind of infection just as if your child had green mucus when she blew her nose. I'm sure th edoc will fix her up.

  • clogged tear duct? My newborn had some junk coming out of her eyes and my doc said it was a clogged tear duct and to just use a warm wash cloth to clean it and to massage the corner of her eye to help it un-clog... Not sure if older babies get it, but maybe!
