Baby’s sense of sight will develop more gradually than his sense of hearing, generally spanning about six to eight months. Physically, baby will see just fine when he’s born, but it takes time for the brain to play catch-up and process all of the images he’s seeing, which is why most things will remain pretty fuzzy for a while. As a newborn, baby will only see about as far as your face, but as time passes, things will start to get much clearer to him. By eight months, you’ll be able to point things out to your little guy and he’ll follow your gaze.
