  • Mine did it much longer than a few weeks. I was worried too, but the doctor said it's normal and it corrected itself.

  • sometimes the muscles in the eyes are not as strong and they go crossed. I used to put my hand over my baby's eyes and wait about 3 seconds then when you take your hand away they are straight again. don't fret over it yet, if its still like that (and i mean all the time, not just once in a while) at like 6 or 9 months they may look into it. at 2 months they are still getting those eye muscles tight. you could try letting her look at black and white object (swirlies or circles) to help her focus and tighten up those muscles. congrats on your baby.
