Question by heartlostangel:
Should I take my infant to the E.R. or wait for the physician to open monday?

I have a baby girl who will be a month on the 14th. She woke up this morning with a thick crust running down her cheek from her eye, which is not red itself. But it was seeping so I wiped it with a clean warm washcloth about two hours ago and massaged the tear duct a bit. But now her eye has a thick line of pus running all the way across(she’s sleeping). It’s so thick you can’t even see her eyelashes. Should I take her to the emergency room tonight or wait for her doctor’s office to open monday?

Take her to the er

Answer by momof3
She’s so little that I would say take her in, or at least call the pediatrician tonight. If she were a little older, you might wait, but I would go tonight.

I would take her to the ER just because you have nothing to loose if its serious then you did the right thing but if its nothing oh well at least you took her in to make sure. Please do not wait if you have a way to the hospital then take her. Good luck I hope its nothing.
