My baby (11m) started getting yellow discharge in his eyes yesterday evening. I read on Dr Sears that it could be blocked ducts and have been doing the massages and I've been applying breastmilk. This morning he woke up looking like this:
(this isn't him, I just got it from google images, but looked exactly like it)
I cleaned it up with cotton makeup pads and warm water, continuing massages and breastmilk... I'm not sure if it's improving or not. It's still gooping.
I'm hesitant to go to the doctor right away, she'll either tell me to just watch it and come back if it gets worse or give me antibiotics. I'm not a fan of antibiotics... he's never had any medicine of any kind before as I'm lucky enough he's never been sick before.
What would you do?
