Question: How to get rid of watery and sticky eyes of my 3 n half months baby?
Answer: Hi dear, Your baby's tear duct may not fully developed yet. This can cause her eye to be watery. Tears wash over your baby's eyeballs all the time, keeping her eyes moist. The tears are made in glands called lacrimal glands. Your baby has one gland above each of her eyes. Tears from her eyes drained away by a duct that leads to her nose. Babies often born with a duct that us not fully open, so the tears are unable to drain away. Your baby's watery eye should get better on its own in a few weeks, once her tear duct has opened up. You can remove any sticky liquid by bathing her eye with cooled boiled water and cotton wool. Don't worry at all.
