    Default Eye Contact

    Hello,

    I have a 10 week old DS and am a bit concerned about his eye contact levels.
    When DS is on his change pad or in his cot he has great eye contact and will follow me around the room. When feeding him a bottle he will 60% of the time look at me.

    If I hold DS in front of me he tries to avoid all eye contact. If a stranger talks to him he would rather look around the room or shopping centre and seems to get distracted.

    At what age did your child start to make great eye contact with you and strangers?

    Thanks

    He's only 10 weeks, I wouldn't be worried at all yet. His eyesight is still developing, he'd only just be able to recognise your face.

    I had the exact same worries as you! But he's probably perfectly fine. DS was much too busy looking at everything happening around him to even bother with much eye contact at that age - perhaps your bub is just a curious little monkey too.

    Thank you for the reply. I thought going through IVF was stressful but parenting is a whole new ball game again.

    the fact that he does make some kind of eye contact with you is a good sign. I agree with above, he is probably just curious and stimulated by all that is going on around him. My little girl is 14weeks and she still refuses to look at me or others sometimes.
