It's been weeping since he was born a week ago and have been following MW's advice re. cooled boiled water (though it was water from tap a couple of times ) and squirts of breastmilk. But the last few days have seen it get worse, with yellow and now greeny-yellow discharge. Pus, I presume. He isn't bothered by it and isn't scrubbing at his eyes, though he does sometimes rub it (and presumably that isn't great for an infection).
MW has advised us to contact out-of-hours GP and we're just waiting for them to call back. Any experience with this going all pus-y, or with using antibiotic drops on such a tiny baby?
keep using the breast milk but deffo sounds infected and i think abx drops are the way to go and use cooled boiled water on a clean piece of cotton to clean. a seperate piece for each eye and wipe from the inner corner outwards, and wash your hands after doing so or giving drops
