    Tears coming out from one eye only

    My one week old gal has been tearing out of one eye only. She would have tears coming out of her left eye whether she is crying or not. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?

    both my son have this problem. due to blocked tear gland.
    pediatrician suggest massage near nose area (between the eyes). it gets better as baby grower older (should be gone by 6-12 mths)

    you may check with your pediatrician if you r worried

    Re: Tears coming out from one eye only

    baby's tear glands at birth are not fully functional - takes time to get it to work (but when it works your heart hurts and you want them to stop) my girl's right eye tear gland started producing tears when she was about 2 weeks old but the left eye did not. do some eye massage near the tear glands to stimulate it - her left eye started producing tears only when she was 6 weeks old
