Try wiping your baby's eyes at least twice daily using a dilute salt solution. Make up the solution by adding a quarter of a teaspoonful of salt to a cup of boiled and cooled water. Wipe your baby's eyes from the side closest to his nose outwards and use a clean piece of cotton wool dipped in the salt solution each time.If your baby's eyes do not improve after 5 days, please take him back to the doctor. The cause may be that he has blocked tear ducts.
