quick question ladies- my dd2 has caught our miserable sinus cold. She is now getting a ton of crap coming out of her eyes. I'm doing warm compresses, boobie milk, and pulsitilla. Other than the medicated drops the ped will prescribe, any other suggestions? She had a check up today, and everything seems ok, but I'm def doing the garlic/mullen drops for preventative measures. I'm reluctant to start squirting salt water in her nose as she can still breathe, and I don't want to irritate the membranes. Has anyone had good luck with that in a baby who's so little?

I think you are doing everything you can! I wouldn't do the salt spray since she is so little. Just nurse nurse nurse and her eyes will clear up when the cold does!
