  • Babies that young dont have good eye coordination, sometimes my daughter would do that too but not all the time I would let ur peditrition know about it if its all the time

  • it takes awhile for babies to strengthen certain muscles. my daughter looked cross eyed for a couple weeks when she was an infant. it's normal. if it lasts longer than a month or so i'd see a pediatrician.

  • No, it's not going to get stuck that way. If your child does end up with eye problems, and some do, it won't have anything to do with this.
