When do babies' eyes start to focus?

I have 17 day old and I am just curious when she will start to see me and not shadows of me? I'm a new mom and I'm just curious. Thank you.

  • On my daughter's 1 month milestones in her baby book I wrote that she was following things with her eyes here and there, so for her it was around 1 month old.
