Hi ladies, i have a 3 months old who doesnt make eye contact with me or anyone else holding him..he preferes to look up the ceiling or down when being held in an upright position. Has anyone experiensed this and did it go away? I spend the whole day at the office and rush home excited to see my son but he looks at me briefly then turns away, its so frustrating! I want him to be excited, fix his eyes on mine, u know that kind of connection...my visitors and other members of the family are quite shocked that my baby is not interested in their faces.. m kinna scared

I would not worry too much at his age. You can bring it up at your next well-baby check up. But at 3 months things are still pretty fuzzy and the only things they can really see are the high contrasting colors.....such as black and white, red. As your baby gets closer to 6 months old his vision will get better and he will be able to see things more clearly. Also for babies they are not going to focus too long on anything. Their attention span is VERY short.
