My son has this. He bounces from having conjunctivitis and normal baby gunky eye. We're back to the doctors tomorrow as I can tell the conjunctivitis has come back. No amount of keeping it clean helps. As soon as you wipe it it comes back. He's had it continuously since he was 2 weeks old and I'm bloody fed up of it! The only time it disappeared was when he had antibiotics for a hand infection.
Thanks everyone. Yes, when I wipe it away it definitely comes back. The goop is thick yellow, it isn't a clear yellow like when she had a clogged teat duct. Well, I guess we will be going to the Dr in the morning. My husband is flying out tomorrow too, traveling for work, so I'm sure my work will love that I am out already after only be back from maternity leave for 3 weeks I am going to try the breastmilk thing too, but because she is at daycare I need to get medicine and even with that they dont want her back for 3 days (if it is pinkeye). LO also just woke up crying, which she hasn't done for 5 weeks, poor baby ;(
