    Harry's have been blocked since he was 2 days old, he's now 4.5 months old.

    If your LO had it too how old were they when the gunge and crust dissapeared? Also did their eyes water a lot too? Harry constantly has a tear in the corner of his eyes.

    They don't bother him at all but the corners get sore occasionally, they don't look nice when they're really bad and i'm a little fed up with 'ooo is that conjunctivitus?'.

    I was told it would clear up once he could cry real tears which he has been able to do for a while now but they're still crusty/gungy every day.

    Thanks x

    My lo was exactly the same hun. I know annoying it is when people comment on it all the time aswell. I was fed up of explaining it lol.

    My lo's cleared up around 6 months too. One day they just stopped running and being gunky!

    The end is in sight xxx

    j only had it in one eye and cleared up at about 4 months or so. I'm convinced the cranio helped get rid of it. And yes, he did have weepy/teary eye too.

    I'm afraid my friends baby still has his at 13 months, the only thing that clears it for a few days is breastmilk so I freeze tiny portions for her in a spice tray! His is really bad.

    I was just about to suggest breast milk, if you still have it.
    A coupla drops on a cotton wool ball (new one for other eye) should help clear it xx
