Answer: Hello, sticky eye is usually not serious and you can treat it at home you cannot prevent sticky eye as the condition occurs when your newborn is born with a blocked tear duct. These tear ducts generally open up and begin draining normally within the first few months of life.  you can use your pinky finger and massage near the tear ducts of the baby so that it is open up. Hope this helps

Question: My baby has a white or light yellow discharge from his left eye since morning.. Due to which his eye lids getting sticked.. Is it normal or any infection please can some tell me.. I'm worried
Answer: Hello,  A newborn's tear ducts are very narrow and susceptible to clogging, which causes white or yellowish gunk to collect. The discharge may look like pus, but it's not a sign of an infection unless the white of the eye starts to turn red, Treatment is easy: Starting from the inner corner of the eye, gently wipe away the discharge with a wet cotton ball or a warm washcloth. You can also try to open the duct by using the tip of your clean pinky finger to lightly massage the space between your baby's eye and nose. Note: This is one of those times when short nails are a big plus. Hope this helps.
