This is due to an eye infection. Clean your baby's eyes by using a dilute salt solution. Dissolve one quarter of a teaspoon of salt in a cup of boiled and cooled water. Wipe your baby's eyes using a cotton wool swab from the nose side of her eyes outwards.This should be done twice daily for 5 days. If her eyes are not better after this time she should be seen by a doctor.
