Day 63 - Cry, Cry, Cry Again

Today's Tip - To help unclog a blocked tear duct, massage the side of your baby's nose with a clean finger

Our baby's eye is always goopy and filled with crust, and our pediatrician told us he has a blocked tear duct. Nothing too serious, but it could take up to 9 months to correct itself. To help, take a clean finger with short fingernails and rub towards the blocked duct along the side of his nose. Do this twice a day regularly and it should speed up the unclogging process.

There are also eyedrops your pediatrician can prescribe to help with the eye goop.
