I need to try and stop worrying about everything, but it is so hard. I am a new mom for a l7 day old baby. He barely looks at me, and I am becoming concerned. He may look at me for a few seconds, and then starts to stare at something else. I breastfeed him, and he does not look at me, only at my boob, and that's only when he keeps his eyes open. Am I worrying for nothing ? Am I expecting too much too soon ? Should my baby be gazing into my eyes at this point ? Please someone answer this. I couldn't find a specific category to put this in. I pray that someone does answer this.

Your baby is just perfect. No worries. Here is some info on visual development. Make sure when breastfeeding you keep up with eye contact it is very soothing for baby (like you can take your eyes off of that new bundle of you anyway). Congratulations on breastfeeding you are doing an amazing thing for both of you.

Milestones of Infant Visual Development
Your infant should be able to…

Momentarily follow an object with eyes or head by 5 weeks.

Hold and sustain direct eye contact with you by 3 months.

Turn both eyes together and locate near objects by 4 months.
