  • Wash your hands and baby's hands because pink eye is highly contagious. you should be able to wait for a doctor's appt. though. It's up to you, but because ER visits are costly I would wait and make an appt. in the am.

  • Tomorrow will be fine. Just keep your and babies hands clean like pp said. If no appt avail go to a walk in or urgent care clinic. Ers cost way too much..lol..

  • If you are nursing put a few drops of expressed milk in them and wait to go to the doc in the morning. The milk may clear it up though. I have used it myself instead of meds and the pink eye was gone in 3 days.

  • I thought my son had pink eye when he was an infant and it turned out to just be a clogged tear duct. If you are breastfeeding definitely do the breast milk in the eye and you can also use a warm wet wash cloth and gently rub from the inner part of the eye near the bridge of the nose outward. They usually clear up quickly.
