Q.

Constantly Rubbing Eyes

Hi Doc,

My LG is constatnly rubbing her eyes, at first i thought it was signs that she wants to sleep cub now i realised that shes doing it constantly even after she has just had a good nap. She is 9,5 months now. Could this be an allergy??? If so how serious? does she need to see a doctor

Babies often rub their eyes especially after waking up so this is very likely to be normal. You only need to be concerned if her eyes look a bit red and watery. If her eyes are normal there is no need for concern.
