First off YAY to DH coming home! =) That is so exciting!

As for the reason the doc said not to use anything on the hands is because babies put their hands in their mouth A LOT so they don't want you using lotion or anything on it that you wouldn't want to put in your babies mouth yourself. That was the way the doc explained it to me - if you wouldn't feed it to the baby, don't put it on babies hands. LOL

My first son had a clogged tear duct that gave us like a greenish goo that would leak all over his poor eye =( We had to massage his tear ducts and wipe it with a warm wash cloth. I even would express breastmilk into his eye but it cleared up on its own around 6 months. It was a pain in the butt, constantly cleaning it though.
