This sounds like an eye and nose allergy with the typical symptoms of hay fever. Your baby is very young to be showing these symptoms already,but in some cases babies become allergic to cats or dogs in the home or to house dust. Try giving your baby a safe antihistamine such as Allecet syrup 2.5ml once daily at bedtime.
