What to do for my baby?

My 6 month old is having problem with her eyes. I think she has an eye infection because she keeps getting this goop is her eyes, and she keeps rubbing them. What can I do to help her? Thanks.

  • Keep that area clean. Try not to let her rub it because if it is an infection it can spread. You may want to call the doctor and ask what you can do. Good Luck!

  • Take her to the pedi right away. Eyes arent something to wait on for meds. It might just be something monor but Im sure they will give you something to help.

  • take to doctor if can. If not my mom used a wash cloth with just some salt water to clean our eyes and now use for my girls. Also be sure to wash everything cause If pink eye congatious and can spread.
