DD has one watery eye with a yellowish eye goober. Her eye lid area is not swoolen or red, and she's not scratching at her eye. I've put in a message to our GP, but I haven't heard back from her yet. I put BM in her eye, and will keep doing that, and I vaccumed -- we have a Miela so it actually picks up stuff, doesn't just blow it around. Any idea? Allergies? Infection????

Clogged tear duct? DD had something similar a few weeks ago. BM cleared it up in a few days.

But her eye is teary... that doesn't seem like it would be clogged. I'll keep doing the BM, though.

My dd had a blocked tear duct, and oddly enough... it was tearing. I didn't get it, still don't... I dropped bm into her eye, but that doesn't do anything to open it up. they open up on their own, or you can gently massage the corner of her eye, where her nose and eye meet.<br><br>
As long as it's not red or puffy it probably is just blocked... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Otis had a blocked tear duct to and with some gentle massage and bm the water eye and goop went away, Also fresh air is good for it too!
