  • I think it varies! My oldest seemed to have tears from the beginning, but my youngest didn't seems to have real tears till he was 7-8 months old! I would take a warm wash cloth and just gently wipe those away. With my second baby I was concerned with a blocked or clogged tear duct, either way a warm wash cloth would take care of that! :)

  • I think my son started crying real tears around week 3.

  • My daughter started crying real tears right around the 3 week - 4 week mark too. Thankfully, we don't see them often. I can't handle the real tears! :)
