I debated about whether or not to post this in fear of coming across as a crazy mom but I sucked it up and am doing so anyway
Gianna was 5 weeks yesterday and we are still in that stage of sleeping a lot during the day and being more awake at night. So today I'm pulling out all the stops. I have every toy scattered around, I'm trying to engage with her as much as you can engage a 5 week old and we are spending a ton of quality time together
Not that this is much different from any other day. She is either always attached to me, swinging in her swing or doing tummy time or floor time on her little play mat
But today my fears and concerns are running away with me. I've noticed that Gianna doesn't seem to focus on anything. Even me. Sure she will glance at me for a second when I'm holding her but she always turns her head away. Even when I get down on the floor with her and stick my head directly in front of hers, no eye contact. She is always looking away. I tried shaking rattles in front of her face, moving objects and even put my finger right up to her eye. Nothing. No interest, no focus no following the object with her eyes .
Am I being paranoid. Could there be something wrong with her eye sight. Is she still too little to be doing what I am expecting she can do. I don't know! And I'm freaking out. I've been on goggle searching blindness in infants and that is def not reassuring. So someone help me out. Should I be worried? Is she just acting like a normal 5 week old. Mommies I need your help!
