I laughed out loud when I read this post! I thuhogt maybe I had written it myself but forgot about it in the fog of new motherhood!First, we had the same eye goo issue for 3+ months with repeated ointment prescriptions and associated worries. Glad that is over now!Second, we interviewed a pediatrician extensively before our son was born. All of her answers were just right, but the first time we brought him to her, we knew we'd made the wrong choice. We were told that the eye massage technique was only effective at making parents feel better , not helping the clogged duct issue. Then there was the suggestion that we start giving him (at 2 weeks old!) rice cereal. What? She also told us that all moms worry too much and all dads worry too little. Yikes. We found a new pediatrician right away
