Eye goop in 4 day old

my newborn has some runny yucky clear stuff coming out one of his eyes. Anyone try breastmilk for this?

Re: Eye goop in 4 day old

  • It may be a tear duct. My son has this. We were told to use a warm washcloth to clean it out. Although I've read on other posts that people have tried breastmilk and it worked great for them.

    MY daughter had this. Dr said it was a clogged duct. I used a warm compress (warm water and wash cloth) it was gone the next day and never came back.

    My son had this issue a few days after birth. Doctor said it was normal and to use warm cloth to clean it. It went away after a few days.
