Google search "Yellow goop in newborn's eye"
Answer:  Blocked tear duct, call doctor to let them know, wipe with warm/wet cotton ball, put a few drops of breastmilk in the corner of the eye (near the nose)- the white blood cells will destroy the bacteria
Status:  It worked!

Google search:  "Newborn son is peeing through his diaper"
Answer:  Try a size bigger diaper (size 1 instead of newborn) and fasten tightly
Status:  It worked!!

Google search:  "Newborn is sneezing a lot", "Is my newborn allergic to our pets?"
Answer:  Normal, amniotic fluid still in their passageways and they can't blow their own nose, so sneezing is the best way to clear things out.  Newborns aren't old enough to be allergic to anything yet, so no pet allergies will show yet

Google search:  "Clear crystals in baby's diaper"
Answer:  Its stuff from the diaper when the baby pees, don't worry

Google search:  "All my newborn does is sleep"
Answer:  Normal, it takes a lot of energy for a newborn just to eat.  Sometimes newborns can sleep up to 23 hours a day, waking for only a few minutes every hour

...thank God for the internet, or our poor doctor would have calls all day.
