  • My daughter would wake up with gooey eyes when she was that little. Doc told me normal and just clean it off with a warm cloth. As always, talk to your doctor.

  • I would say it's likely clogged tear ducts, which are very common.
    BUT since she is so young I would have her looked at right away by her pediatrician incase she has an eye infection. They might put her on an antibiotic eye ointment to be sure.
