Hi sir/Madam, my son completed 4 months on March 10th ( born on November 10, 2016). Some times I see that his eyes are not in co ordination with eachothet. I have attached a pic that I took yesterday for your reference. Last time ( he was 3 months old) when I met pediatrician he told it's normal till 4 or 5 months in kids. I wanted to check if this is normal and how long will it take to be like us. Or should I check with an eye specialist ? Pls help.
