My 16-month-old has been waking up every morning with green, crusty, yucky junk all around her eyes/eyelashes for the past week or so. It also occurs randomly throughout the day, not just when she's sleeping. The daycare mentioned pinkeye, but I really don't think that's it -- her eyes aren't pink, don't seem itchy, and it started with both eyes, not just one.

She also has a slight cough and green mucus when she sneezes, but the coughing/sneezing/green mucus is actually really common for her. My DH just said something very true and alarming the other day -- "She actually sneezed, and nothing green came out!" I didn't realize how common green mucusy sneezes had become for her.

Do you think this warrants a trip to the doctor, or is there some kind of natural remedy for these things?

I would give her some CLO and wash her eyes out with breast milk or camomile tea.

IMO there is not reason to take her to the doc. What is he going to do? Prescribe SOMETHING.
