Re: Goopy eye???

Sorry to gross you all out! Yes, pee is our own personal antiseptic (when it's fresh.) And morning pee is more potent. Anyways, it did work well. I'm sure you all think I'm a freak now!

Oh yeah, calendula tea, too, you can put a wash cloth in it and put it on the eye. It's anti bacterial.

Re: Goopy eye???

Breastmilk all the way. It really is a miracle for the eye. It even cleared up MY case of pink eye a while back!

Re: Goopy eye???

The breastmilk definately works but you can also massage it-put your pinky finger sideways under the eye and gently massage it in towards his nose. Kinda in and up at the same time. It helps push the blockage out. My dd's ped told me how to do it and I used the BM on it at the same time-cleared it up really quick-I actually saw the goop come out of the duct.

I've heard about the pee thing too-my dh told me that when he was in the Marines they were told to pee on their feet to keep from getting foot fungus and rot when they were in the jungle-or actually anytime. I wasn't about to ask if he still does it-but I did change the sheets on the bed a few days early that week.
