We have had two eye infections here, and we didnt use antibiotics for either, but they were both without a fever and only lasted a couple of days. Are you still nursing or do you have any friends who have breastmilk? It worked for us when DD was little, and even in my eyes. I would just make sure its room temp and squirt it in the eye, pretty generously. Its the only natural remedy I know of. Eyes typically heal very fast, so I would say that if its not pretty much cleared up by tomorrow or the next day I would go ahead with antibiotic cream. IMO, since eyes heal so fast, there would be a serious problem if it lasted for weeks and weeks.

Thanks for the response!  DD's eye infection was nearly better the next day after I posted that.  They were still a little red all day, puffy in the morning when she woke up and of course sealed shut.  She had a low fever all night that I didnt treat because it didnt seem to bother her. 

What I did for her infection was this: I put green tea bags on her eyes(the best I could, she kept pushing them away).  I put manuka honey on her eye and I imagine some got in it.  I let her low fever go, I did not give her medicine.  And it is completely gone today, her eyes look completely normal.
