Oh no! Their eyes have not opened yet! They are 10 days old, and they have sore eyes, does this have effect on their eyes opening? They have sore eyes, poor babies. My sister let my niece and nephew hold them. I did not want them to handle these babies yet. When they are 4 weeks plus I would let them hold them. But not at this age, I think they need to live longer. Because when we said to Jesse, my nephew, he is 3, that the babies needed to go night night, he sqeezed on little Chubs! I told her not to let them hold them! And she took them to my room, and let Jesse, and Jazmine hold the babies! And Jesse held Chubs for over 1 minute, I don't want these babies held very long. I hold them for under a minute everyday, and then put them back with momma. And I keep my hands clean, and pet momma before I pick them up, so they still have momma's smell on them. But, ug, how do you treat their sore eyes? When they are this young? My mom will probably not take them to the vet.. Although we should to get them and momma looked at. They have not opened their eyes yet, and I think they should have by now.. But.. ya. I didn't want my niece/nephew holding them yet. Looking, they can, but holding is a no no. Help is appreciated. Thank you for reading!!
