your baby has congenital dacrocystitis which is basically blockage of tear duct. its resoves with time on its own in some cases. u may use toba eye drops 2-3 times to reduce sticky discharge from eye. Massage on inner side of eye over tear duct (nasal side). its better to consult an ophthalmologist who can demonstrate the massage technique to you practically.
