Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of the baby's eyes are full of dirt or rubbing, is a condition that is actually commonly found in infants. This happens usually because of the development of the baby's tear ducts which are not yet perfect so that the tears that should be flowing instead are blocked and forming eye wax. Another possibility that can occur is a viral or bacterial infection, especially because the baby does not yet have a good blinking reflex so that if there is dust or other dirt on the eyes, it tends to settle and become eye dirt.
In the case of your baby, regardless of the condition of the dirt in his eyes that could have been normal, it's true that breast milk is a good source of food and plays a very important role in the baby's immune system. But you also need to know is in terms of age, your baby has passed the age of 6 months which at this age, breast milk is no longer a primary food source. And for any disease, not all conditions can be treated with breast milk. There are a number of conditions where ASI does need medication, especially if after a few days, symptoms persist or even get worse, then you should take your child to a general practitioner or to a pediatrician.
Our advice for you now, if the complaint is only dirt on the eyes, and no red eyes, the baby looks fussy, pus, yellowish or greenish stools, the baby has difficulty opening both eyes, bumps on the eyelids, etc. that appear to torture, You simply routinely clean the dirt with a cotton swab or cotton bud that has been moistened with warm water. How to clean it is to sweep it from the corner of the inner eye to the outer corner of the eye slowly and repeated continuously until the dirt is clean.
But if there are other complaints, such as colds that do not go away, or so forth, do not hesitate to take him to the doctor to be given the appropriate medicine for his condition. While giving medicine, it doesn't matter if you want to continue giving it ASI. But always remember that he needs complementary foods for breastfeeding to grow and develop at his age. So, hopefully answering your question.
