If your child has a yellow discharge in the eye area, wipe with warm damp wash cloth from outer eye to nose. This could just be a slight infection or allergy, if it get's worse contact your pediatrician to be seen.
While most cases of blocked tear ducts resolve over the first several months of a child's life, at the first signs of a blocked tear duct always see your baby's eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam to rule out a more serious problem.
If your infant's eyes are producing a thick yellow or green discharge, or there is redness and swelling around the eyes, this could indicate an eye infection and should be treated by your eye doctor straightaway.
