  • She will eventually. She's just not ready yet.

  • Don't rush it. You will miss these moments of rest to sit quietly to feed her while she looks into your eyes. And there will be a moment where she will want to do everything herelf and won't need you anymore. There is nothing wrong with her. Just go with it. Enjoy.

  • I agree with the other comments. In a month or two this will probably all change. Just keep talking to her and showing her things and she will get the hang of it soon enough.
