Hi. Do u see any other symptoms other than lack of tears? If your son was not producing tears at all you will notice that his eyes are very dry, and probably even red and itchy.

Hi Welcome to healthcare magic ,
You need not worry thats completely normal in babies , it takes atleast a year for them i.e lacrimal glands to develop normally so u still can wait for another 4-5 months and still if not able to produce tears then can have an opthalmological consultation.
