  • She probably has a blocked tear duct. Rub her eye gently with a damp washcloth down and outward. If it doesn't get better on it's own the doctor will have to insert a probe into her tear duct. It seems really scary but it's painless and it's over fast and the problem is instantly solved. Happened with my son. It is pretty common in babies. Good luck.

  • to unblock a tear duct, massage the spot under the cornewr of the eye that is leaking near the nose. Do this a few times a day.
