Runny Eyes

my 3.5 week old son has been having runny eyes and lots of eye boogers... his eyes are not red or anything... could this be something with the tear ducts?? I've been wiping them with a warm cloth so that they don't seal shut... any suggestions?

Hi Alissa. My dd had 'sticky-eye' from when she was born until she was 8 weeks. We were advised to put saline solution on some cotton wool and wipe her eyes from the inside of the eye to the outside at every nappy change or if they became excessively gunky. If we needed to wipe across her eyes more than once we would always get a fresh bit of cotton wool, we were told never to just keep wiping across the eye with the same bit. Her eyes took a couple of months to clear, and now she is 6.5 months old and hasn't had a problem since. Hope I've helped.
