My daughter start to have tears at around 4 weeks. At that time only right eyes. Now she 8 weeks, but when she cry....the tears not too much too... sometimes right eyes has more tears and left one nothing or maybe only wet a little bit. Is it normal ???

My bub got colic aound the 3 week mark and with that came tears - big wet ones that streamed down his cheek - poor little man ! When he is just doing grizzly crys he might shed a few little ones but when it's a colic attack he nearly drowns in them !

My little girl starting getting tears at about 6 weeks old.

It was so strange when she was younger than that as she would cry and cry, yet there were no tears. I thought it was strange and I thought something was wrong as I didn't know that they didn't have tears at first. But now when she cries she has tears, although not lots and lots, but they are definitely there.

I always thought that baby just make noise to tell us they need something. They don't cry because they're truly upset. My bub is 2 months and before that she got worked up so much (I had to attend to the toddler) she had little tears. So I think tears come when they're really distressed.
my baby is exactly 7weeks today and today was the first day i noticed a tear. He only have them in one eye with inly about 2tears.

i dont think i have read anywhere that they come at a particular age.

My baby is 7 weeks and i still haven't noticed tears when she cries.... she does get a watery eye though because of a blocked duct.
