In brief: He has tears..

...When he breast feeds, and when he doesn't breast feed too.
Every time he blinks, a tear washes across his eye. If he is actually crying when he is feeding then something is bothering him (maybe throat or ear pain) and you should get him checked out. If it is just eye tearing and he is otherwise well, it might be from a little nasal congestion , so don't worry about it too much.
