Is it normal for babies to seem a little cross-eyed, even if they aren't actually suffering any eye-placement abnormalities?<br><br>
Sometimes when I look at Willow (6 mos), she looks a little cross-eyed to me...but then when I really look closely, it seems more like her eyes are just small still and her eyeballs are bigger...or something like that. Like it's a "Fit" thing, not a true cross-eyed thing.<br><br>
I've seen it in other babies, too, and it's like they haven't grown into their eyes yet...<br><br>
Do you know what I'm saying? I don't think I'm making sense.<br><br>
These are examples that sort of show what I'm talking about...She doesn't look cross-eyed, but her eyes look like they are too big for her eye sockets or something? I know there is nothing medically wrong with her (I've asked the doc)...I'm just wondering if it's a common baby thing, 'cause I don't remember it with my older kids.<br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/breathingroom/cleanbaby01.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...leanbaby01.jpg</a><br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/breathingroom/mygirls-1.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2.../mygirls-1.jpg</a><br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/breathingroom/cleanbaby02.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...leanbaby02.jpg</a><br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v299/breathingroom/surprise.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...m/surprise.jpg</a>

I don't think she looks cross-eyed at all. Her eyes are big, but deep-set, so maybe that's where you're coming from?<br><br>
Beautiful baby, btw. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thanks...<br><br>
I guess I'm just sensitive to it because I see her all day every day?<br><br>
LOL
