IF YOUR NEW­BORN LOOKS INTO A MIR­ROR HE WILL DE­VELOP A SQUINT

Your Baby & Toddler - - Baby Files -

At birth your baby is able to fo­cus on ob­jects at a dis­tance of at least 20cm away. Be­yond this he can de­tect light, colours and shapes but it’s all a bit blurry for now. You may no­tice your baby’s eyes may not func­tion as a team, seem mis­aligned or squint. It takes at least three months for your child’s eyes to align prop­erly. If the squint per­sists, seek med­i­cal ad­vice.
