I have noticed my baby girl who is 7 weeks old tends to sometimes go a little cross eyed, is this normal and will it go away?

Its normal for them to be a little cross eyed when they're trying to focus and it should go away. Babies can't focus on objects for up to 3 months. If you notice she's very cross eyed or one eye is more severe then the other after about 3 -4 months then I would ask my doctor.

Yes this is absolutley normal. Babies this small are stll unable to focus their eyes as things get farther away or closer to them. as long as they can see up to 6-10 inches away from their face they are fine. As they get older they will be able to see better but right now sight is limited.

Yes, it's normal and funny. I don't think you have anything too worry about

Most infants have occassional, short episodes of eye crossing in the first 3-4 months. Normal. Caution: if the episodes increase in length of time or severity, or if the episodes do not disappear by 4 months
