    Question Breastmilk in his eye?

    Advertisements
    I realize I am blowing up the new moms board lately....

    Carter has a blocked tear duct. It doesnt seem to bother him, his eye just gets really crusty and stuck shut his pediatrician said to wipe it with a warm cloth and massage the inner corner of his eye. It hasnt gone away, we end up wiping his eye a zillion times a day.

    I was talking to my grandmother about it, and she said to put a few drops of breastmilk in his eye. I thought that was REALLY weird, until I googled "newborn blocked tear duct" and found that it was suggested by a ton of people.

    Has anyone done this? I feel weird squirting milk into his eye, but if it works Ill try it.

    If you dont feel comfortable squirting it into his eye, just squirt some into a cup and use a clean soft flannel and drip it onto his eye

    NO TICKER NEEDED...HE'S HOME!!!
