Hi!!! I have a daughter thats 1 month old. First time mom and i am a bit worried. Something runny and white stuff is coming out of her left eye. I dont know what it is and it seems like its geeting worse. I tried to wipe it, put breast milk in it, but nothing happens. At night it dries up and poor baby can't open her eye. :( please, can someone tell me what to do? Thank you!!!!

Use warm water on a cloth and be careful not to use the same spot you already used to wipe. Or go to your Doctor!
Or Breast milk on cotton wool ball. wipe eye from nose outwards and don't reuse same piece or wipe the other way as more likely to cause an infection. If no improvement within 3 days or any redness appears take to doctor. If she had a cold recently or even the sniffles the cold can settle in the eye causing conjunctivitis (pink eye) I doubt its that since its white and not green it may be a clogged tear duct I would still call the doctor.
