In brief: ? Chlamydia ?

I am assuming that you bring the child to a doctor. Mention your concerns.
If you had chlamydia at the time of delivery the child could have developed eye findings and that would have been noted and treated. The other presentation is that of pneumonia. Both of these conditions can be treated but you must must mention your concerns to the child's doctor and you and father get treated too pronto!!
