      What your baby’s seeing at 0 - 3 months

      0 - 3 months: what your baby's seeing

      Learn how your baby's eyesight is changing, from recognising mum and dad to showing more interest in their surroundings.

      Your newborn’s eyesight is quite blurry. They can only focus on objects 8 to 10 inches away – roughly where your face is when you’re feeding or holding them close. It’ll take between 4 and 6 months before your baby’s eyesight is fully developed with depth of field and colour vision. 

      Between 1 and 3 months old their eyesight continually develops in quality and range, although it’s still quite limited. At this age they’re particularly drawn to 2 things: the human face – especially yours – and almost any moving object. Hanging a bright, moving mobile above their cot will encourage them to reach upwards and improve their hand-eye co-ordination.
