First MileStone- Eye Contact

Parents typically notice the first direct eye contact from their baby at around 6 to 8 weeks of age.

This is one of the first milestones you’ll notice, and it’s a big deal not just because your baby is finally paying attention to you, and following you with her eyes, but also because it indicates that her neurological growth and ability to communicate are on track. She’s demonstrating that her brain is registering a familiar face.
