  • Yes that's totally normal. Mine all did that, doctor said it was totally normal, their eyes aren't totally developed yet.

  • newbord babies yes... when they are trying to learn how to use their eyes and focus... if it is an older baby i would look into it.

  • yes its very normal...their eyes are still adjusting and the muscles that coordinate the eyes are still growing and learning how to work together.

    In fact...most babies do this as infants :)

  • Normal! It takes months for the muscles that control the eyes to get toned up enough to actually maintain motor control.
