I got up this morning to baby grunting and groaning and squirming strangely. She couldn't open either one of her eyes. I couldn't pry them open either. I have been dealing with the goopiness for a little while but this was over the top. I had to lay a warm wet rag on them for quite a while to get em open. Probably wasn't that long, but it sure did feel like it.
Talk about one mad baby too. I would be pretty mad if my eyes refused to open also. She couldn't see a thing. That must have been pretty scary for her. it got her good and mad anyways.
I am guessing it is clogged tear ducts. But wow. I am beginning to wonder about it, if it is some sort of infection or something. Her eyeballs or the inside of her eyelids aren't red so I am not going to worry about it too much. Her eyelids on the outside are a bit puffy though.
She doesn't seem to be in distress except of course when her eyes are glued shut. My poor baby.
