My 7 week old has a weepy left eye which goes yellow and crusty after a sleep. No redness or swelling just clear discharge. As new parents do, my husband and I took him to the hospital emergency ward 2 nights ago and they gave us drops to put in. Its still the same but I have heard that squirting a drop of breastmilk in his eye can clear it up faster. Has anyone tried this???
Was going to give it a go but thought putting milk in his eye sounded a little odd.
If its true breatsmilk really is amazing stuff!!
