    Did she get a little scratch in her eye or some other irritant I wonder... Because it is just alittle wet, and not mucus I would rule out illness as a cause. I recommend using a cotton ball and weak tea to clean the eye area daily. The tea will help to heal, and by cleaning up any wetness, it will help keep the eye lid unglued. Also if it is being caused by an injury, then I would add a couple of drops of PolyViSol baby vitamins a day in the beak for a week. You can find these vitamins right at walmart in the baby aisle. I wish you the best! [​IMG]
