Hi Sherry, my Noah had a clogged tear duct and the doctor told us to do the warm wash cloth and he also gave us some drops to put in his eye. I don't know how many of the drops actually made it into his eye (as you can imagine, it was difficult with a newborn :). My doc said most kids grow out of it and Noah did after a few months. Noah was always very stuffy too but my doctor said that was just normal baby stuffiness- I'm not sure if the two are related.

Congratulations. Anna is beautiful and glad to hear things are going well.

My Ped says its normal. Anna's does the same thing though. Some days its HORRIBLE! Oozing yellow crap constantly!! Literally every few minutes. Then some days its great.

Yesterday and today it has been great. However, she has not been outside what so ever! I wonder if this has alot to do with the wind and producing extra tears?!

But yeah, we use the bulb syringe constantly too! UGHH!

Yeah, Janie had it and one of the others (I can't remember who [:I]). We used a warm wash cloth several times a day. It eventually stopped oozing. My niece had to have the procedure to open hers (at about a year I think???) What does your doc say about it, Sherry?

Sherry,
Evan just got over a blocked tearduct at 5 1/2 months old. Somedays it was just terrable and some days it would just weep a little. The doctors kept telling me it would go away with time which I was skeptical about but it did clear up. I dont know if there is a connection either but he used to have a constant stuffy nose that we would have to do the saline and aspirator routine 3-4 times a day.

I hope she gets better. BTW she is an absolute doll.

Ok, Anna has had a clogged tear duct from a few days of age. Its not getting any better! Worse! I have to wipe green gunk and access water out of it every few minutes, literally! We have our good days and bad days with it. She also has had a stuffy nose and sometimes runny for weeks now. It has not turned into anything else. Just stays confined. Thank goodness!

Here is my question! Has anyone had the clogged tear duct this bad?! And...if so do you think the stuffy nose could be related? The opthomologist told me that this is normal....althoug, I did not ask about it being related. She goes for her one month this week so I will be sure to ask.

She is sooo cute! It's so nice to see you and your baby are doing well. Everytime I hear of someone having a good outcome who have had PE gives me hope.

Your doing great on the weight loss, must be doing something right.
