    Yes. You can use a few different things. Some people swear breast milk works really well to clear it. I've not tried that. I used cotton wall and eye wash like a very mild saline. Always wipe from the inside to the outer eye. Never reuse cotton wool as it can spread between the eyes. Or you can use a product called Little Wipes (I think). Sme company makes them as makes Fess. You get it from the chemist.

    I squirted Archie's eyes with breast milk. Worked wonders for us. Hard to aim but he would rub it into his eyes. Cleared up after one or two squirts.

    Had to take spencer to the doctor for an anti histamine and corticosteroid injection for his eye. He's a tough nut. Got over it quite quickly

    Henry had gunky eyes too. We were told to do exactly what Sonja suggested with saline or cool boiled water. used it about 3 times a day and it cleared in about a week.

    Funny story about Ruby. She was all terrible twos yesterday. By the end of a LOOONG day, half of it screaming, she said, 'whats that noise, in my ears?' She had been screaming so much her ears were ringing

    Kel - LMAO! Did you have the same ringing as Ruby

    Yes, my MHCN always suggests breast milk or saline for nose/eye congestion/gunkiness. If Stella gets a bit of a messy nose, I squirt in a few drops of home made saline. It works pretty well.

    Amazing 'baby' Swan photo Fiona! Hubby really did a great job (even though I was a Hawthorn supporter on the day).

    Hi all

    Fiona - classic photo . Evie had conjunctivitis about this time last year and again recently, both times I've used chlorsig ointment to clear it up and it's gone in a few days, I found the chlorsig drops useless however saline was good enough to wipe the gunk off. This time I used distilled rosewater (can get it from chemists) on her eyes to clean them and I thought it was better than saline, it also calms the redness they tend to get and is soothing. I've actually used the rosewater on the ecsema she gets on her face to calm the redness and it's the best her face has been.

    Sonja - funny footy story, I use to follow NRL by picking my fav colours when I was younger, then we got our own local team and I followed them, but up until a couple of years ago I lost interest in footy altogether but don't mind watching a final.

    JFB - Evie has had another raging ear infection since the weekend too & has been miserable with temps and nasty cough, so back on anti-b's. If she gets another one I will be asking if she needs grommets, she has a hearing test sometime soon.
    Terrible tragedy about the girl in Melbourne, I haven't paid much attention to news lately except couldn't help following this story, something like this always affects communities in which they live in and just about everywhere else, and it really makes you realise how vulnerable & trusting people are & our streets aren't safe, I agree with you that people that commit these senseless violent acts can't be rehabilitated, how many times do you hear about them having voilent tendencies that eventually lead to something like this. Once when I was walking home from school with a friend (we had to walk through a bush track) and we were confronted by a naked man in joggers, thankfully there were some boys behind us that picked up rocks and tree branches and chased him off, but it was really scary to think he could have grabbed one of us. There was also a night I stupidly walked home pi$$ed by myself, I was about a block away from home and a car stopped and followed me and the guy opened the door & told me to get in then a couple were walking close by and asked if I was ok and he sped off. I think Evie will detest how strict I will be with her when she's older & wants to go off anywhere on her own.

    My mother had a relapse on Friday and I took her back to hosp but they sent her home bcs she was lucid again when they finally got to see her, but she progressively got worse that night and kept both me and my dad up most of the night plus I was up with Evie, then she became aggressive and was hallucinating thinking the house was full of people, it got really bad so I rang an ambo again & I was at the hospital until quite late again with her until a doc came to talk to me, by then she had snapped out of it, she displayed a few different behaviours that day, I swear it was like watching the movie Sybil in action. So now it's looking like dementia will be the diagnosis. I had to practically beg them to keep her for a couple days until her MRI tomorrow as my dad is a wreck and exhausted & I'm pretty shagged too. It's so hard to get any answers and you're not told how to deal with it. Today she is as bright as a button, the weird thing is she remembers alot of her hallucinations, I'm just hoping she stays herself for awhile at least, the past week or so has been a living nightmare.

    Oh Kismet, I am so sorry, that is so hard for you and your dad.

    Today Indy had a little throw up after feeding, nothing unusual about that except that it had snot like mucus in it .... I am guessing it is related to his goopy eye? He seems well though ... So not sure ... Will see how he goes I guess! Anyone had the snotty mucus spew? It was just little snotty bits in the usual milky upchuck.

    Fiona - milk can sometimes make some kids mucousy, has he had a cold? I was told by out dr that conjunctivitis is usually contracted if kids rub snotty noses & then their eyes, not convinced that's entirely true though cos Evie's eye infection came on after being outside during a really windy day & she caught the cold at the same time as the eye infection.

    Heaps of them. Even if they aren't snotty babies can still be mucasy and as they can't blow their noses is usually comes up threw vomit as it runs down the back of their throats. I wouldn't stress about it but he might be in the early stages of a cold so might be worth having a quiet day tomorrow just in case.
