I read that the eye drops were mostly for the std's gonorrhea and chlamydia, but that they were also to prevent other eye infections (no specifics).
I have always had issues with my eyes and considered getting the drops to prevent my baby getting anything I may have (I just had pink eye a couple weeks ago and 2 fever blisters back to back last week and this week).
Do you think the eye drops are more helpful or even more detrimental in this situation? I hated getting frequent eye infections/things, and if I could somehow help the baby not experience that, I would.
By the way, never posted here before, but I'm 27, 21 weeks pregnant with a boy, first baby, no friends have babies (or are close to thinking about it), and sometimes (often) feel I have no idea what I'm doing. Also, I'm trying to stop dropping the f-bomb as a catch-all adjective as I am wont to do. I don't even realize I'm doing it sometimes.
