My 1 week infant girl has got sticky eyes. What can be done and approximately how much milk should be given in regular intervals?

In brief: Blocked tear ducts

Sticky eyes are usually related to a blocked lacrimal duct (tear duct).
Massage gently with warm water cotton ball under the lower eyelid from nose out on each side several times a day. If the discharge gets heavy yellow or green, see your pediatrician. The formula/breastmilk should be 2-3 ounces every 3-4 hours. I hope this helps. :)
