Hi,
I have never posted before (though i read lots of other people's posts).
My 10 month old seems slightly cross eyed when she is sleepy, although she doesn't otherwise. I have started to notice it couple of weeks ago and now i am really super paranoid about it. i have tried to get appointment for our regular pediatrician but was able to get for next month.
her right eye is not in the correct position when she is sleepy and when she wakes up for like few minutes.
I have looked on google but was hoping some mum's could tell me their experiences with this. I am really looking forward for your advice.

get her to a pediatrics optimistic and ask for a tracking test. You can try it as home and come in with some results. hold a pen front and center,....move to the center left, note what happen, then far left...again note. back to center...work you way up half ...full...center...left ...full....you get see if both eyes are tracking object together. having information as to her fictional use at home is so helpful. if you put a fish cracker in center in front of her which hand does she use. what if you put it to the right or the left, watch the eyes, and the corresponding hand use. Just infor to take to a visit. Good luck
