Tear Ducts Lock Rss

Hey everyone,
Just wondering when babies are meant to start crying with tears? My lil man is over 8 mths old and has never had a tear. All the other babies at mothers group have had tears for months but no matter how upset bub gets, he doesnt have tears! Do I need to see a doc to see if he has tear ducts?? It doesnt seem to be doing him any harm but just worried it might in the future...
thanks!!

I would get a referral to an ophthalmologist. (Make sure it is one that deals with kids). May be just a blocked tear duct, which is commonly seen in babies.

hmmm I heard some babies are born with working tear ducts as it seemed our newborn had tears in the hospital but DD2 and DD3 were app 6 weeks old.

thanks, think i might have to see the doc. just seemed kinda stupid, but thanks for reassuring me its worthwhile checking out smile
