can you get a toy and see if he can track it? what about a bright light? at 2 months old their sight is still pretty close to their face so they are unable to focus or see things far away. what makes you think he might be blind?

I have another post that has them all in it but he wont track anything, he doesn't seem to notice when anyone walks by, doesn't seem to notice lights unless they are bright and shinning right in his eyes like sunlight or a flash light, he freaks out when no one is holding him for any length of time, I will put things near his face or my finger near his eye he wont blink or squint until you touch the tip of his eye lashes and more......

i think you would have found out at his newborn screening

I actually don't think that she would have found out at newborn screening because going from two weeks to two months a lot of changes happen to our newborns, my suggestion is also to call the pedi first thing Monday because our intuition and motherly instincts can be very alarming and precise at times. Good luck momma and I'll be praying for your little one. .

Thank you this morning I was playing with him and he actually tracked me 3 or 4 times something he has never done I don't know if it is a fluke but I am going to keep trying it off and on threw out the day and see if he does it again.
