Things we know about baby's eyes

  • Babies don't blink very much. Whilst adults blink every 3-5 seconds, in their first year it is not unusual for babies to keep their eyes open for one whole minute.
  • Babies' tear reflex is delayed until six weeks or more of life and continues to develop up to 5-7 months of life.
  • ​Eyes are the last of the sensory organs to fully develop after birth.
