Thank you ladies for this discussion & thnak you Dr. Benaroch for your very respectful response. I'm not a new mom, I have 2 older very healthy kids, but number 3 is far apart from the 1st 2 and is developing so differently. He meets milestones & pediatrician is happy with him. But I've had only very mild concerns when he did exactly what you described in your children. He's 18 months & doesn't have a lot of words but babbles constantly and can follow simple instructions. So I've been really laid back about him...more like a grandma almost than the younger uptight mildstone marking mommy I was in my 20s. That's until the freaky eye thing! So thank you all for puttin my fears to rest. His 1st time to do it was at the doc's office at 18 months. And like you all said - it is up to the right, very briefly & easily deterred w/ interaction. Still as an RN I was alerted to possible neuro problem, as I have only ever seen this in mentally handicapped kids. So I will continue to monitor but not worry. He's happy, active and so smart w/ music and balls - maybe a future pitcher & catcher! So advanced in ways I would never have appreciated in my 1st two. Thanks again so much! mrsclb33View Thread
