Mucus coming from my baby''s eyes

My baby is 7 months old and I have put her in a creche but from the first week she has been there she has been coming home with a blocked nose . . .over the weekend I saw a yellowy mucus pushing up through her eyes and yesterday she vommited like a yellow slimy see through mess onto her top. What could this be? I need urgent help please. Is this normal?

This is not normal. Your baby has picked up a bad cold after being at the creche. You ned to try to clear her nose by using saline nose drops twice daily. Clean her eyes twice a day with a dilute salt solution [one quarter teaspoon salt in a cup of boiled and cooled water] Wipe her eyes from her nose side outwards and throw away the cotton wool swab after each wipe.If she is not better after 5 days then she should be seen by a doctor.
