If you have ever watched a new baby cry you may have noticed that they do not have tears. Most babies do not start shedding tears until they are at least two months old. While babies are equipped from birth with the ability to produce tears, most newborns will dry cry. For the first few months of life babies only experience basal tearing. This means the tear ducts only produce enough tears to keep the eye moist and healthy. They also experience reflex tearing. This occurs when something irritates the eye such as a stray eyelash.
