Q.

Eyes

My 13 months old son started getting whitish / yellow stuff coming out his eyes last nite while in the bath, not a lot though. - We started using bubble bath for the first time last nite During the night he woke up and had some more, it was not hard just covering some of his lashes, but he could open his eyes. This morning this was a bit more but not a lot. Should I be worried?
Thanx

Your son is reacting to the bubble bath which is usually very alkaline and can irritate the eyes. Do not use bubble baths for your son.
