Guess whose got pink eye!

Brad woke up with stuff in his eyes and I took him I the doctors. And sure enough, it was pink eye. And despite our best efforts, kaylee got it a couple days later. I have to say though, they both have been taking the eye drops like champs. So far DD1 has escaped it, let's hope it stay like that.

I'm sorry. Evie has a red spot in her eye right now like she burst a blood vessel.

PS, I've heard of using breast milk as eye drops.. if you are still nursing. But you already have the drops and they are cooperating with you. Smile

Seriously, is there anything breast milk can't do?! Still nursing, never thought I'd make it this far:) poor evie. Hope her eye gets better

I can't imagine how taxing bfing must be for you. I'm exhausted by it (no, not giving up) and I've only got one.

Congrats on making it this far! I think you are over the BIG growth spurts. From here on out, it should be cake for you. Smile

Oh no, bummer! Ellie has had it a couple times, too. What a pain!

Ditto on putting a few drops of breastmilk in the eye. Helped us too!
