Eyelash in infant's eye
I observed a thin strand of eyelash in my daughter's eye. She is 7 weeks old. How do I remove it? Or shall I leave it and wait for it to be expelled out on its own? There is no redness in eye, neither my daughter seems to be much bothered by it. What is your opinion about squirting the affected eye with breastmilk. Please advise.
