    6 month old eye watering?
    newmommy227 posted:
    Is it normal that my six month old eyes tend to water, usually when she wakes up but sometimes there will just be random tears, not a lot just a few and she'll be perfectly fine. Feedback?
    Olivetre responded:
    I know someone whose daughter's eyes also tear up and it looks like she is crying. She is 5 yo but I believe she said it was due to allergies.
    jtgrace replied to Olivetre's response:
    My daughter turns 7 months this week and we are having the same problem. She is constantly rubbing both her eyes and her eyelids sometimes look a little puffy, too. The whites of her eyes, however, aren't red or bloodshot at all. Her right eye has been tearing for a couple of days now. We brought her to her pedi who didn't have much to offer other than to see a pediatric ophthalmologist. My first thought was allergies but the pedi said she is still too young. She had blocked tear ducts as a newborn but we haven't had an issue in months. We are going to see the specialist on Saturday....

    My sons eyes were puffy for the first month after he was born and once in awhile he still gets like that my pedi told us that he will have allergies that is what puffy eyes are a sign of. Maybe that means for watery too.
