swollen-eyed baby?

Postby fluffycabbage » Fri Oct 09, 2009 10:07 am

the last week or so charlie has been waking up with a swollen eye (well, eyelid area), on her right hand side. now shes started to sleep on her right. but ive also changed to bio w.p. too. i took off her sheet and replaced it with one washed in non bio lastnight, but she still woke up with a swollen eye :-? does anybody else lo's who sleep on their side wake up with this?
it disappears after a few hrs of bein awake. and her actual eye isnt red or irritating her. its just the eyelid :shock:

Not sure, have you spoken to your HV about it? is she irritating it in the night, rubbing it etc? x

Aoife used to get that, she would wake up looking like she'd gone ten rounds with Tyson my GP told me to leave it and that it would go away on it's own and it did, It rarely happens now.
If your worried though speak to your HV or GP :hug:
