Ok before anyone tells me to call the Dr. I did already.
The whole left side is puffed up, I don't understand what happen. Could it just be allergies? What should I do?

my daughters eye was almost shut like that and had kind of puss almost coming out of it I called a nurse/family member and she said it was a cold in her eye I got all the puss I could out and wiped it with saline (little noses is fine). The next morning it was gone! Hope this helps.

It could also be a bug bite. Espically if their is no goo in her eye. I don't know why bugs like to bite by babies eyes.

Thanks Rena! We did go to the Dr. and as I figured they really couldn't come up with the problem being that it had gone down by that time and was completely cleared! but there wasn't goop, it seems it was a minor reaction. Yeah doc said probably allergies and to just keep washing his hands and face when outside or in contact with things. Thanks again...

My son got bit by a mosquito close to my son's eye also and it swelled up just like that! It is weird.

Now that Heidi says that, my son has always swollen up a lot with bug bites. Last year he got a TINY one by his eye and his whole eye was swollen.

It could be allergies or it could be pink eye. If there was green goop then I would think it is pink eye and the only way to treat that is to get drops. The other thing to do is to get a cool wet cloth and put it on the baby's eye to help reduce the swelling.
