Put a drop of breast milk in it and it'll clear up like magic. It worked on all of my babies who got a little case of "funky eye"

I agree. Take him in ASAP. Pink eye is highly contagious! There are some "natural" remedies but they take a lot longer to clear up the infection and dosing and methods aren't well controlled, so I personally would never use it on a baby that young.

Quoting Beauty91805: Sounds like it could be.

Could be!  Call the doctor and describe what's going on so they can send something in or see him.  Just try not to let any siblings or anyone touch his hands/eye/etc and then touch their eye, pink eye is super contagious.

My 14 month old actually has it right now.  He woke up yesterday with the whites of his eyes pink and lots of crust and goo, but his doctors office was closed.  Today he woke up with his eye completely red and swollen, with a lot of crust... so finally today they were open and called him in some pink eye drops!
