When should I be concerned about my child’s crossed eyes?

It's normal for newborn babies to have eyes that cross or wander sometimes, especially when they're tired. However, if your child is older than 3 months of age, tell your doctor if you see your child's eyes cross or wander, even if it happens only once in a while. Also tell your doctor if your child often looks at you with one eye closed, or with his or her head turned to one side.
