See your pediatricia: Tearing in an infant is often a sign of a blocked nasolacrimal (tear) duct which is a benign and spontaneously resolving condition but occasionally can be a sign of a more serious eye disorder. Your pediatrician will examine your infant's eyes to determine if anything else needs to be done.

Lacrimal duct: Sometimes babies can have a blockage of the duct that collects the tears please contact your physician for possible treatment.
