  • Sounds like it could possibly be conjunctivitis .. I agree if it's still there in the morning take her to her pediatrician so they can tell you whether it's infectious or just caused by a cold/sinus infection. They can prescribe antibiotic eye drops if it's the infectious kind.

  • Could be a clogged tear duct?? Try putting breast milk in it. :) My daughter had a clogged tear duct and I put breast milk in her eye every time it got gunky. Cleared up literally over night.
