    Hello everyone hope all doing well
    I'm a mother of 12 wks old twin boys and I have a question about their eye contact and tracking objects /toys ? How your babies are going interms of eye development ?
    Ps regarding reflux and wind problem I give my boys baby probiotics it helps their digestion and it can be given from birth it's a little pricy but I have seen major improvements , It's in a powder form so I just add little spoon to their bottle once a day .

    @bbhope it's not everyday but is slowly increasing. He's been unsettled at night lately though so that may be why.

    Definitely rule out underlying problems. Good luck i hope there's nothing wrong

    My 3 month old ds2 sometimes follows but not always. He's forever looking around at his surroundings he's very inquisitive!!
    He pays alot of attention to the toys on his toy bar on bouncer or overhanging toys on playmat, he loves to bat at them and grab them.

    Our formula has probiotics in it so gp told us not to give extra.

    Lastnight while bathing ds2 we had eye contact the entire time and he was "talking" to me the whole duration of the bath and afterwards for tummy time
    Cutest bonding moment, my heart melted

    I think all babies are different when it comes to eye contact. I remember with ds1 I didn't feel like I bonded that well or felt like he knew who I was as he never seemed fussed looking at me. More interested in surroundings and at 2 he's still the same. However my ds2 who is 6 months adores attention and will just sit staring at me.

    Your baby sounds like my now 16 month old was! The first 4 months were absolute hell to be honest. However she was always fine in pram and car and nights were done. She would only sleep during the day in car or being rocked very roughly! We tried losec for suspected silent reflux but did nothing but Paed said colic at 6 week. We tried Nan comfort formula, doctor Browns bottles and chiro. And saw a sleep specialist. At 4 months she improved. I think it can be a waiting game unfortunately. Good luck and hang in there xxx

    @PinkIsTheNewBlack: you went through what we did. Losec, sleep school etc. I thought Losec isn't helping but when the GP gave us the wrong dosage which is a lot lower than what paed prescribed, he seems to be getting worse with reflux. you baby sounds like mine, except my DS won't sleep in pram and car. He just won't nap.

    Thanks for your replies , I'm craving so much for a long gaze and talking back to me . One of my twins started eye contact at 6 wks and he mastered it now by 12 weeks and is get social . The other one however isn't making much eye contact of some times feel like he is on purpose turns away to avoid me . He follows check pattern and some toys , he is very playful and loves cuddle but poor on the eye contact . We had his eyes checked all looks physically fine but I'm told by specialist that some times babies will take up to 6 months of age to have prolonged gaze and that's considered normal but I'm truly freaking out about him

    He may just have a shy personality. It's not uncommon for twins to be opposites. Give it time as the dr suggested. Keep stimulating him with toys, mirror etc.
    I understand you can't help worrying, I've been the same over the past 3 months trying every formula, lotion and potion to get a happy "normal" baby. Turns out he just needed time to settle into his new life outside the womb. He's by no means perfect but so much better. I no longer think he's miserable.
    Good luck and try to stress less.

    Waiting game - yep! Seems for us 3 months was the magic point. He's getting better every day!! Still not "perfect" but def improved!!
