I think i have an eye infection, I'm not sure if its a sty or a general infection, just started feeling the pain this afternoon, will probably be clearer tomorrow morning.
Does anyone know if i can use eye ointments (Brolene / golden eye oninment etc) whilst breastfeeding???

Use breast milk it works a treat.
