LG does not produce tears

So random but she’s never produced tears since birth so 18 months now. We can’t recall ever seeing a single tear. I’ve just done an econsult with the doctors but now I’m wondering if I’m being dramatic 🫣 what would you do if this was your child? Or do any of you also have a child that doesn’t produce tears? To add, she does cry when in pain / upset etc. She doesn’t have dry eyes, sore eyes or anything like that, just no tears when she does “cry”.

our baby was like this the first couple of months. he had blocked tear ducts. definitely something to investigate.

I don’t know if it makes a difference but my LO only produced tears when he’s really really upset

Thank you both ladies! The doctors have made us an appointment for next week - better to just double check 🙂

It can sometimes be a rare condition where their eyes are drier than normal (even if they don't look dry). If your GP isn't sure, ask for referral to a paediatric eye doctor to be sure, as it can cause issues if it's missed x

@Holly thank you! We have an appointment next week so I’ll feel more confident to ask for a referral if necessary now xx
