  • As newborns, babies can see about a foot in front of them. By four months, their vision is considered "fully developed," meaning they can distinguish colors, near vs. far vision and both of their eyes work together for depth perception. There's a cool video at that shows how their vision develops.

  • A baby can see about 4-5 inches at this age. Their vision is not fully developed until about 6 months. At birth they can barely see infront of them. Vision is the ONLY sense that is not fully developed in womb.
