Any suggestions other than medicine or breastmilk to get rid of goop in the eyes. Jack is 6 weeks old and I'm pretty sure his tear ducts are blocked and causing his eyes to goop up. Our middle daughter had the same problem and we had to use ointment in her eyes for the first 18 months of her life (then she had surgery).
But we don't have the money to take him to the doctor right now and I'm not breastfeeding. I've been massaging the ducts but they don't seem to be clearing and his eyes get really goopy sometimes. Not as bad as my daughter's were though. Any other suggestions?
