Common mistakes when baby has pink eye

Well-meaning parents and caregivers may accidentally worsen pink eye or cause it to spread to other people. To avoid the spread of infection:

  • Don’t put breast milk in the baby’s eye. It is not a substitute for antibiotics, and contains other bacteria that can be harmful
  • Do carefully wash your hands before and after handling the baby to protect yourself and others from contagion. Always wash hands before and after you eat, when you go to the bathroom and after you sneeze or cough
  • Do not share towels or bedding with your baby until pink eye clears up
  • Do sanitize objects that are commonly touched by the baby, such as tables, cots, cuddle blankets, and toys
