This is an infection of her eye. Make up a dilute salt solution: add a quarter teaspoonful of salt to a cup of boiled and cooled water. Ue this solution to clean her eye. Wipe from her eye from the nose side outwards. Discard the swab afer each wipe. Clean your baby's eye 3 times a day. If her eye is still swollen and infected after 2 days she must be taken to see a doctor.
