Hi Pratnv,
Thanks for writing your query.
Watering of eyes in babies is mainly due to blockage in the tear ducts. Staganant tears can result in infection of the eye and can cause result in production of sticky fluid around the eye which can be cleaned by clean cotton dipped in sterile water.
Please get your child examined by an Ophthalmoloist.
I hope this helps you.
Thanks and take care.
