My ds(3 weeks old) looks like he might have pink eye in one eye... it looked a little boogery yesterday and today it's a little pink in the corner. Ive heard that a few drops of breast milk is effective. Anyone tried this? I just dropped two drops in his eye. How often and how long should i try brfore calling the ped?

My 1 year old got pink eye while we were outta town for Thanksgiving. I just put some breastmilk in it twice one day and once the next two days and it was more than gone by then.

I just squirt some in with every diaper change. At that age it could be a clogged tear duct.
