1 month old baby. Her right eye is just producing tears every now and then but no redness. It looks tired too. Is there an issue?
Check with peds: Probably she has blocked tear duct. Using clear water on a clean, soft cloth, gently wipe any discharge out of your baby's eyes. Do this several times a day or as often as necessary. The tear ducts lie just beneath the nasal corner of the eyes. Gently massage this area moving your fingertip in a semi-circle from the corner of the eye inward toward the nose. But for sure bring her to see peds. ...Read more

Not sure about the age of your child. Glad that you caught her before she hit her head on the floor. Place an ice-pack over the affected area on the face. For children above the age 6 months you can give a dose of children's Motrin (ibuprofen) / Ibuprofen = this is an anti-inflammatory medicine and will be helpful for the enlarging bruise (also known as contusion).
Call your pediatrician, follow-up asap. ...Read more
