Why is my baby s eye watering a lot?

Hello, my 6month baby`s eyes are watering a lot... every time he cries he has a bit of glue-eye effect ...I use some chamomile tea as antiseptic to wash his eyes and it kind of helps .. but for a while, that is until he starts to cry again .. what can it be? how can I help my baby?

Hi....if this has been happening since birth, it could be blocked nasolacrimal duct either one side or both sides. It can be relieved by a simple procedure called probing which is a day care procedure.
For this and for evaluation I suggest you consult a pediatrician.
