Why do my baby’s eyes go cross-eyed sometimes, should I be worried at all? I seem to have seen other babies do this too.

  • This is normal as your baby’s muscles develop and strengthen and they learn to focus. It usually stops by the time they’re 4–6 months old. Strabismus, or a misalignment of the eyes, is common in newborns and babies, and it can occur in older kids as well.

  • They’re still learning how to focus properly – they’re probably just trying to look at something close to them!

  • I heard they can’t see far until a few months and they could be trying to focus. Certainly funny to see!

  • I can’t remember why but it is normal.
