This is an eye infection which is very mild and commonly
seen in newborn babies right after birth. It is caused by
blood or fluid entering the baby's eye during the birth.
The eyelashes appear to be glued together after sleep and
hence the name, sticky eye. There may also be a pus like
discharge from the inner eye corner.
The symptoms of conjunctivitis can be confused with sticky
eye so of your baby has the above symptoms of sticky eye
after two days of birth, you must consult the doctor as it
could be conjunctivitis.
Sticky eys clears up on its own but you may have to clean
your baby's eyes regularly with moist cotton wool to keep
them clean and to remove the stickiness.
