  • umm- he is six months old! Don't worry about it! If you are terribly worried already- the best thing you can do is ask a doctor..but your baby is only six month old! :) I find myself FRUSTERATED at the people who are even mentioning it to you! they must be REALLY bored :)

  • My son is 6 months too. He will make eye contact when he wants to but not all the time. He gets distracted easily just like any normal, healthy, growing baby. He's still just observing and learning about his environment sosometimes he just doesn't have time to look at momma! Whoever told you that he has poor eye contact probably never had a baby.
