Prob either go to docs or chemist to get some drops for it. Won't be fun putting them in though

LL - i also call them eye bogeys

it may be the start of conjunctivitis so when you clean it use a separate piece of cotton wool/cloth so you don't pass to the other eye

If you are BF, breast milk is great to clean it with

The dr can prescribe some ointment which works brilliantly.

Are you BFing? I swear to god that tip works.

Doc told me it's not conjunctivitus if their eyeball itself is still white. If eyeball goes red, take him.
